Once, as I remember

17th century
author of text

This rare and beautiful carol was first published in an Italian collection of 1689 called Corona di sacre canzoni o laude spirituali, where its melody line was given with an Italian text (Antururù). In 1920 it was included in An Italian Carol Book (one of several important collections edited by Charles Wood and G. R. Woodward) in a four-part version by Wood with a new text by Woodward.
