Title: Six songs from the York Mystery Play AE21 cover
Composer: Anonymous
Editor: Richard Rastall
Reference: AE21

Description: These two-part songs from the play The Assumption of the Virgin in the York Mystery Cycle probably date from about 1450; they are the largest body of music to survive from any English drama before the Reformation. The Latin texts paraphrase passages from The Song of Songs, The Golden Legend and liturgical sources. The music is in the relaxed, lyrical style typical of the period, and is most suitable for soloists. iii + 5 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-025-0.
