The two books contain some 100 songs chosen from the definitive collections of The English Lutenists begun by Edmund Fellowes, revised by Thurston Dart and added to by later scholars. They include many favourites and many lesser-known songs by popular composers such as Dowland, Campion and Pilkington (no known ancestor of the compiler) as well as some unjustly forgotten such as Corkine, Attey and Ferrabosco. Nearly all are for middle-range voice, with lute parts transcribed in staff notation. The books have an appropriate preface and a commentary on the words, which often throw a penetrating light on Elizabethan and Jacobean life.

    CONTENTS

    ANONYMOUS
    As at noon Dulcina rested
    Sweet, stay awhile!

    JOHN ATTEY
    On a time the amorous Silvy

    JOHN BARTLET
    A pretty duck there was
    O Lord, thy faithfulness
    What thing is love?
    When from my love

    THOMAS CAMPION
    A secret love or two
    Author of light
    Beauty, since you so much desire
    Come you pretty false-eyed wanton
    Follow thy fair sun
    Follow your saint
    I must complain
    If love loves truth
    If thou long'st so much
    It fell on a summer's day
    Love me or not
    My sweetest Lesbia
    Never love unless you can
    O what unhoped for sweet supply!
    Oft have I sigh'd
    The cypress curtain of the night
    The peaceful western wind
    There is a garden in her face
    Vain men, whose follies
    Veil, love, mine eyes
    When to her lute Corinna sings
    Your fair looks

    MICHAEL CAVENDISH
    Love is not blind
    Stay, Glycia, stay!
    The heart to rue
    Wanton, come hither!

    WILLIAM CORKINE
    He that hath no mistress
    Sweet Cupid
    Sweet, let me go!

    JOHN DANYEL
    Dost thou withdraw thy grace?
    I die whenas I do not see
    Like as the lute delights
    Why canst thou not?

    ALFONSO FERRABOSCO II
    Drown not with tears
    Fain I would
    Like hermit poor
    Unconstant love
    Young and simple though I am

    THOMAS FORD
    Fair sweet cruel
    Not full twelve years
    Now I see thy looks were feigned
    Since first I saw your face
    Unto the temple of thy beauty

    RICHARD GREAVES
    Ye bubbling springs

    ROBERT JOHNSON
    Dear do not your fair beauty wrong
