Arnold von Bruck (also Arnold de Pruck, Arnoldus Brugensis, indicating his origin) (c. 1500 – February 6, 1554) was a Franco-Flemish composer of the Renaissance, active in several Habsburg courts. He was one of the most famous and influential composers in German-speaking areas during the first half of the 16th century, the period of the Protestant Reformation; however he seems to have remained a Roman Catholic.


“A soldier walked over the field,
as so many times before;
he had neither possessions, nor money.
He passed by a tavern,
as so many times before.
The ale-wife looked out of the window,
and then a little bit more,
as so many times before.
(Here follows a list of herbs,
all of aphrodisiac properties)
