O rosa bella

author of text

O rosa bella is English, by a composer who hid his light under a bushel of alternative names: tantalizingly little is known about the life and career of John Bedyngham / Bodigham / Bellingun / Benigun / Boddenham. O rosa bella is a heartfelt lament from a young man who thinks he’s dying of love for an unattainable girl.

from notes by Catherine Bott © 2006

Le compositeur de O rosa bella, une pièce anglaise, s’est caché sous un boisseau de pseudonymes: nous avons une frustrante méconnaissance de la vie et de la carrière de John Bedyngham / Bodigham / Bellingun / Benigun / Boddenham. O rosa bella est la lamentation sincère d’un jeune homme convaincu de se mourir d’amour pour une jeune fille inaccessible.

O rosa bella ist englisch, von einem Komponisten, der sein Licht unter den Scheffel verschiedenster Namen stellte: Man weiß verzweiflungsvoll wenig über Leben und Laufbahn des John Bedyngham / Bodigham / Bellingun / Benigun / Boddenham. O rosa bella ist die tief empfundene Klage eines jungen Mannes, der aus Liebe zu einem unerreichbaren Mädchen meint, sterben zu müssen.
