English Lute Songs. Book 2

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 Listing

    Awake sweet love
    Clear or cloudy
    Come again: sweet love
    Come away, come sweet love
    Daphne was not so chaste
    Far from triumphing Court
    Farewell unkind farewell
    Fie on this feigning
    Fine knacks for ladies
    Flow my tears
    Flow not so fast ye fountains
    I saw my lady weep
    If my complaints could passions move
    In darkness let me dwell
    Lady if you so spite me
    Now, o now I needs must part
    Shall I sue?
    Sleep, wayward thoughts
    Sorrow, sorrow, stay
    Sweet stay awhile
    Time stands still
    To ask for all thy love
    Toss not my soul
    Weep you no more, sad fountains
    What if I never speed?
    When Phoebus first did Daphne love

    Fie, what a coil is here!
    Go to bed, sweet muse
    My father fain would have me take a man
    My love hath her true love betrayed
    What if I seek for love of thee?

    Absence, hear thou my protestation
    I saw my lady weeping
    It was a lover and his lass
    O grief! e'en on the bud

    Change thy mind since she doth change

    Down a down, thus Phyllis sung
    Now let her change
    Rest sweet nymphs

    Dido was the Carthage Queen

    If I hope I pine
    If she forsake me
    Kind in unkindness
    Shall I come if I swim?
    Sweet, come again
    Though far from joy
    What then is love but mourning
    When Laura smiles
