Lovely song we heard at Revels
from the program:
"Mystical imagery permeates this early 15th century carol:"For in this rose contained was heaven and earth in little space(i.e. Mary's womb) Res Miranda! (wondrous thing)."

Was wondrously struck myself with the idea of 15th century women singing about wombs as "a rose containing heaven and earth in little space."

It is, isn't it?
