by Jean-Baptiste Besard (c.1567-1617)

Rosette pour un peu d’absence is a playfully indignant setting of a poem by Philippe Desportes (1546-1606) and the melody may be derived from a four-part setting by Eustache du Caurroy (1549-1609). Our rendition is based on the version published by Besard, 1603. Since the lute accompaniment to Besard's setting of the air largely consists of block harmonies that are not missed when missing, we have chosen a vocal solo performance.
