SONGS BY LUTENIST COMPOSERS
Sung by HERBERT HEYNER (Baritone)
CAMPIAN'S first song is a fresh-airy piece in praise of Spring, contrasted with the discontent of the poet. The secret of his mood is in the last two lines-
Unkindly if true love be used, 'Twill yield thee little grace.
T ITTLE is known of Thomas Greaves , who published only one collection of pieces, containing both solo airs and madrigals. His song is a setting of a curious poem telling (with a fundamental dourness) of how woman brought woe to man, and how man was helped to rise to higher things.
TN Dowland's pedlar's song ' Fine knacks ' there is mingled some philosophy about love, of which, the poet declares, even a beggar may be liberal.
The ' speed ' in the other Dowland refers to success in love. The lover seriously considers what to do about his failure to impress the lady, and determines, in rather inconclusive fashion, that either he ' will love or admire ' her.
TONES' poet argues more vehemently about woman's coyness-a regular disquisition, allusive and not too easy to follow.
