Album: not on an album (1416)
  • songfacts ®
  • This piece was written by John Dunstable, and its first public performance appears to have been on August 21, 1416 to celebrate the victory of Henry V at the Siege of Harfleur and the Battle of the Seine. Both Henry and Emperor Sigismund were present at the Canterbury Cathedral celebrations. At the time this was a revolutionary style of music with long chords which became known as the English Sound. >>
