Canzonettes for three and four voices are collected in this volume, plus Italian madrigals in the early monodic style of the continuo-madrigal. A Roman Catholic, Dering worked first in Brussels, then at the court of Charles 1 and Henrietta Maria before his death in 1630. His music makes for interesting comparison with that of another recusant composer, Peter Philips, collected in MB29 and MB61 and MB75.
