Elizabeth I's court was a great place to be a musician, and opportunities to make music were all around, whether for use in religious services, or for pleasurable moments during entertainment and relaxation. William Byrd was the queen's particular musical favourite, but this did not exclude others such as Morley or Allison from getting a hearing. This album concentrates on the secular rather than the sacred, and, from music in praise of the Queen, and of England, to dance tunes and songs, it presents a selection of many of the types of music which a courtier in late sixteenth century London would have heard and known. (from album description)

I claim no right to this song; and this video is not 'monetized.' The video was simply created for a class to showcase Elizabethan music, and I happen to have bought the CD of Elizabethan Consort when I was in Oxford as a Study Abroad Program student.
