URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

  • One of numerous arrangements of an anonymous Italian song from about 1470.
  • Authorship of Josquin not certain. From a source without text.
  • Grove Music's entry for this says "only in E-SE s.s.; adds new B to Sup and T of ?Busnoys’ chanson, different version from that used in Josquin’s mass; questioned by NJE".
