Anne Boleyn's Songbook

A touching reference to Anne’s troubles came with the anonymous “Venes regret, venes tous” and the concluding song (not from the songbook) “O Deathe rock me asleep”. This had the feel of a litany, with a descending 3-note motif and the sad refrain “For I must die; There is no remedye”. The excellent soloist in these, and several other pieces, was mezzo Martha McLorinan.
