Myn lyking

First line:
I saw a fair mayden sytten and sing
author of text

Sir Richard Runciman Terry is remembered for his achievement in rescuing Tudor church music from near-oblivion: he published numerous editions and conducted pioneering performances at Westminster Cathedral, of which he was organist from 1901 to 1924. Myn lyking is one of his handful of published compositions; its choice of text (taken from the important Sloane manuscript) illustrates his interest—not then widely shared—in the riches of early English poetry.
