Nowel: Owt of Your Slepe Aryse (#4 from On Yoolis Night Set 1)
SSA a cappella
This jolly carol inspired us to elaborate on the burden (refrain). which is printed in its original form at the beginning of this edition. The alternate burden, in three voices, is Anonymous 4's own invention. It is based on the original monophonic burden, but expands it into a voice-exchange canon, with an added line of harmony.
