According to Grove Music, this madrigal was one of two in Venturi del Nibbio's first 1592 book that were adapted to English words and published in London. Under the English title As Mopsus went hir silly flock foorth leading, this "appeared in the Madrigals to Five Voyces (RISM 1598¹5) of Morley, who, in his comments on it (1597), praised ‘the excellency of his judgment in expressing and gracing his ditty’ and recommended him as a model composer in the genre."
