by Philippe Verdelot (c1480 – 1530)

Verdelot's setting of this anonymous text, 'With tears and sighs,' is from the 1536 publication for solo voice and lute. The piece also exists in a slightly variant setting for four voices in a manuscript that once belonged to the English King Henry VIII. In the absence of additional verses, Mignarda's performance repeats the single verse with spontaneous improvised ornamentation.
