Quote

To all true lovers of Musicke, W. Byrd wisheth all true happinesse both temporall and eternall. Being excited by your kinde acceptance of my former travailes in Musicke, I am thereby much incouraged to commend to you these my last labours, for myne ultimum vale. Wheren I hope you shall finde Musicke to content every humour: either melancholy, merry or mixt of both. William Byrd, 1543-1623
