    Thank you, Craig. I am sorry to confess that I don’t know what music is it. I googled under ‘renaissence music’ I downloaded and it appears it is copyright free – should be, since it is perhaps 400 years old :)

    Thanks Adriana, it’s wonderful. I was wondering what the music right at the beginning is …?

    I was lucky enough to visit Hampton Court back in 1998 and I remember how much I enjoyed it, particularly King William’s magnificent apartments. It’s amusing that they were for show and historians think he only used the smaller rooms below. (With the exception of the Little Bedchamber where he sometimes slept, although they think he probably used a downstairs bedroom.)

    Hi. “Helas Madam” is a folk song said to be composed by Henry VIII. The song is part of a secular collection, found on a manuscript that was used in Henry’s court. The originality of the song has been questioned, with various parts of the song allegedly lifted from similar pieces in Europe. The song itself is a conversation in Middle French between a man and woman, with the man asking the woman if he can become her humble servant (from Wikipedia).
