William Cornysh

Born: 1465

Died: October 1523

Birthplace: England

William Cornysh the Younger (also spelled Cornyshe or Cornish) was an English composer,dramatist, actor, and poet. The works of John Browne are given pride of place in the Eton manuscript. It seems that in the examples given above that Cornysh may have been emulating Browne (his own Stabat mater features a celebrated madrigalian setting of "crucifige", and his O Maria salvatoris Mater features the exclamation "En" (="Oh") in a similar way to Cornysh's interjection in his Stabat mater).
