Songs to two voices.
I saw my lady weepe :
Flow my teares fall from your springs :
Sorow sorow stay, lend true repentant teares :
Dye not before thy day :
Mourne, mourne, day is with darknesse fled :
Tymes eldest sonne, old age the heire of ease : First part.
Then sit thee downe,& say thy Nunc demittis : Second part.
When others sings Venite exultemus : Third part.
Songs to 4. voices.
Praise blindnesse eies, for seeing is deceipt :
O sweet woods, the delight of solitarienesse :
If fluds of teares could clense my follies past :
Fine knacks for Ladies, cheap, choise, braue and new :
Now cease my wandring eyes :
Come ye heauie states of night :
White as Lillies was hir face :
Wofull heart with griefe opressed :
A Sheperd in a shade his plaining made :
Faction that euer dwells in court :
Shall I sue, shall I seeke for grace :
[Finding in fields my Siluia all alone :] Tosse not my soule :
Songs to 5. voices.
Cleare or Cloudie sweet as Aprill showring :
Humor say what makst thou heere :
Dowlands adew for Master Oliuer Cromwell.
see: Th.Morley : First Booke, No V
Finding in fields :
ye shall finde a better dittie.
