Misc. Comments

A nearly identical version appeared 7 years later in Lasso's Libro de villanelle, moresche, et altri canzoni (Paris, 1581), attributed to Lasso. Even though it was published later, the Lasso attribution is far more well-known today, as the tune was transcribed in the early 20th century, decades before the Gabrieli.
