English Madrigals

Works by Gibbons, Wilbye and Morley


Gibbons, O:

The Silver Swan

O That The Learned Poets

I weigh not Fortune's frown

I tremble not at noise of war

I see ambition never pleased

I feign not friendship where I hate

How art thou thralled?

Farewell all joys

Dainty fine bird

Fair ladies that to love

'mongst thousand good

Now each flowery bank

Lais now old

What is our life?

Ah, dear heart

Fair is the rose

Nay let me weep

Ne'er let the Sun

Yet if that age

Trust not too much fair youth

Morley:

Arise, awake, you silly shepherds sleeping

Besides a fountain

No, no, no, Nigella

Singing alone

With my love my life was nestled

O mistress mine

Stay heart, run not so fast

Fire and lightening

Phyllis, I fain would die now

Hard by a crystal fountain

In every place

O Grief, even on the bud

Absence, hear thou my protestation

Deep lamenting

Sleep slumbring eyes

Hark! Alleluia

Wilbye:

Weep, weep, mine eyes

Lady when I behold

Thus Saith My Cloris Bright

Adieu, sweet Amaryllis

Die hapless man

Alas! what a wretched life

When shall my wretched life?

Of joys and pleasing pains

My throat is sore

Cruel, behold my heavy ending

Thou art but young

Why dost thou shoot?

Sweet honey-sucking bees

Yet sweet take heed

Ye that do live in pleasures

O wretched man

Ah! Cannot sighs nor tears

Draw on, sweet night

Stay, Corydon, thou swain

Softly, o softly drop my eyes
