SONGS BY LUTENIST COMPOSERS
Sung by HERBERT HEYNER
THE ladies that Campian cares not for are
-L those ' that must be wooed and prayed.' ' Give them gold that sell love,' he cries, ' give me the nut-brown lass,' the winsome country maid.
DEAUTY SAT BATHING (words by Anthony Munday ) tells of a dream in which the poet was tantalized by a vision that, as often in dreams, never attained certainty, so that he woke as wise as when he slept.
MORLEY's two songs have long been familiar to most of us in modern settings, notably in Quilter's. It was a lover comes from As You Like it, and 0 mistress mine from Twelfth Nigh! ; and as Morley was probably a friend of Shakespeare, it is quite likely that his settings were used when the plays were first produced.
PHILIP ROSSETER , one of the royal lute players, ran a theatrical company about
1612. In his songs is often a touch of wistfulness. ' Shall I come if I swim, my dear ? ' he asks. ' All the powers assist my desire, save you alone, that set my woeful heart on fire.'
THE lover in William Corkine 's song braces himself against his lady's frowns. Love must not flee, or cry. Time, he thinks, will mend matters.
Let her coyness then take leisure, Pains are worthy such a treasure.
SOCIAL service amongst young people may be called, without exaggeration, one nf tho most vital and honourable services. Its value and progress are to be considered this evening hy Mr. Peter Johnston , who speaks with the authority of his experience at Oxford House, Bethnal Green.
