Page 13 - I was your heart, your soul, and treasure; And evermore you sobb'd and sigh'd Burning in flames beyond all measure : —Three days endured your love to me, And it was lost in other three! Adieu Love, adieu Love, untrue Love, Untrue Love, untrue Love, adieu Love; Your mind is light, soon lost for new love.
Page 13 - While that the sun with his beams hot Scorched the fruits in vale and mountain, Philon the shepherd, late forgot, Sitting beside a crystal fountain, In shadow of a green oak tree Upon his pipe this song play'd he...
Page 10 - WOUNDED I am and dare not seek relief For this new stroke unseen but not unfelt ; No blood nor bruise is witness of my grief, But sighs and tears wherewith I mourn and melt. If I complain, my witness is suspect, If I contain, with cares I am undone: Sit still and die, tell truth and be reject ; O hateful choice, that sorrow cannot shun.

There careless thoughts are freed of that flame, Wherewith her thralls are scorched to the heart. If Love would so, would God...
Page 1 - THE object of this Edition is to present in an accessible form various works by English composers of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries, which would otherwise be difficult to obtain. It is intended to reprint a selection from the music hidden away in public and private libraries, which is almost unknown, except to antiquaries and collectors of rare books. Each volume will be accompanied by Introductions, Biographical Notices, and references to the authorities whence...
Page 11 - O just, reserve thy rod To chasten those that from thy laws retire. But choose aright, good Love, I thee require, The golden head Not that of lead ; Her heart is frost and must dissolve by fire.
