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.

Misc. Notes edition from GB-Lcm MS 1070, fol. 63v–68r
This edition is taken directly from the manuscript, London, Royal College of Music MS 1070, fol. 63v–68r. The manuscript probably was produced in France in the earlier part of the sixteenth century, perhaps ca.1515–1520. The manuscript itself generally is called "The Anne Boleyn Music Book" due to an inscription in a slightly later English hand in the middle of the manuscript, “Mres A Bolleyene Nowe thus”. Its relationship to Anne Boleyn, if any, is uncertain. The reference to “M[ist]res[s]” suggests a date before 1533 (when she became Queen of England). If the manuscript was acquired by Anne Boleyn it may have been when she was in France, 1514–1521. [See: David Skinner, “Context and Earlier Ownership”, The Anne Boleyn Music Book...facsimile (Oxford: Diamm Facsimiles, 2017), 1–2.]

Misc. Comments

  • Grove Music lists the source of this as "Mot.ii: 18, no.33". However there was more than one series of motets, hence more than one "book 2". IMSLP has many of the collections, but not all of them have a contents list. Original publication date to be added once the original collection is identified.
  • Josquin's motet later was used by Cipriano de Rore in the composition of his Parody Mass (or "imitation" or "derivative" mass) of the same name.
