Collected by Forster in 1549 - one of the most beautiful melodies.
The text describes a maiden lamenting her lover seemingly not coming back because he had to go to war - the endless story of loved ones ripped apart by countie's rulers (who often didn't take the risk to participate).
The words are from a woman and it is likely the melody stems from the same woman - one of the early known woman composers. 
The Collection Forster is a vast collection with Forster keen to find the finest music in the country to make it available in the newly invented print. Collectors at this time didn't even try to find the name of the composers as they knew usually none of them.
