These English songs from around the middle of the fifteenth century come from threesources: Oxford, Bodleian Library MS Selden B 26 (Tappster, dryngker), same library, MS Ashmole 191 (Go herthurt with adversite), and British Library, Add. MS 5665 the so-called Ritson MS (the remaining songs). My wofull heart is pretty well a ballad, like many French pieces in this form, it has a final melisma that is common to the ends of both sections, something that is found also inNow help, fortune. While the two longer songs (2-3) here have the mellifluous elegance characteristic of the rather beautiful songs attributed variously to John Bedyngham and Walter Frye Tappster, dryngker, with its slightly cruder partwriting, seems to belong to a different tradition. CONTENTS: Tappster, dryngker Now helpe, Fortune My wofull hert Be pes! Ye make me spille my ale! Go hert, hurt with adversite.
