Alexander Agricola (c.1446-1506) wrote songs which are some of the finest examples of the period, showing a real flair for simultaneously-composed counterpoint with flowing lines. He also left several pieces without words underlaid, apparently intended to be performed instrumentally (some of the earliest such compositions preserved); these include multiple variations on Hayne von Ghizeghem's famous chanson De tous bien playne.
