This song can be found in Master Avatar's book, "Early Period and
Popular Dance Music: Pavanes, Galliards, Basse, Branles, and Country
Dances - 3rd Edition." It is one of the pieces that Avatar and his band
du jour play for the dance Trenchmore, and can be found under the name
Trenchmore in the book. The name of the song is "Hunting of the Fox,"
and Avatar has five verses printed. He has attributed the song to
Ravenscroft, published in 1620.

You can probably get a copy by contacting Master Avatar at
<avatarcat at>.

I hope this helps,
