    'Tis holiday
    A Morning Hymn
    Ah, Belinda! I am prest with torment
    But ere we this perform
    Dialogue of Corydon and Mopsa
    Evening Hymn
    Fairest Isle
    Fear no danger to ensue
    Hark the ech'ing air
    How blest are shepherds
    I attempt from love's sickness
    I spy Celia
    I take no pleasure
    I'll sail upon the Dog-star
    If music be the food of love (1st version)
    If music be the food of love (3rd version)
    In the black dismal dungeon of despair
    Job's Curse
    Let sullen discord smile
    Lord, what is man
    Lost is my quiet
    Mad Bess
    Man is for the woman made
    Music for a while
    No, resistance is but vain
    Not all my torments
    On the brow of Richmond Hill
    Pious Celinda
    Saul and the Witch at Endor
    Shepherd, leave decoying
    So when the glittering Queen of Night
    Sound fame thy brazen trumpet
    Sound the trumpet
    Sweeter than roses
    Take not a woman's anger ill
    The Blessed Virgin's Expostulation
    The Queen's Epicedium
    There's not a swain of the plain
    Thou tun'st this world
    Turn then thine eyes
    We sing to him
    What can we poor females do?
    When I am laid in earth
    Why should men quarrel?
