Anon 15th and 16th century English lyrics (E)



Abbreviations (PDF)

This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.

Programme Note

Stravinsky: "After composing The Rake's Progress I was persuaded by a strong desire to compose another work in which the problems of setting English words to music would reappear, but this time in a purer, non-dramatic form … Three of the poems are semi-sacred. The fourth…is a love lyric. The Cantata is, therefore, secular."
