Allez regrets

"Allez regrets" is a chanson usually credited to Hayne van Ghizeghem. Together with the composer's "De tous biens plaine", this was one of the most famous chansons of the age, and was much used as a basis for variation and as a cantus firmus for mass settings.

Cholji (ref. 1) lists five chanson settings, including those by Alexander Agricola and Loyset Compere, and five mass settings, including that by Josquin
