The Puck Song comes, of course, from .4 Midsummer Night's Dream; Come away, Death and ' The Wind and the Rain ' are the Clown's songs in Twelfth Night. 'Who is Sylvia?' comes from Two Gentlemen of Verona, though it is much more associated in the public mind with Schubert. Full Fathom Five ' is sung by Ariel in The Tempest, and ' Sigh no more. Ladies ' is from Much Ado about Nothing. The last item, ' You Gentlemen of England,' is scarcely a folk-song; the text was written by Martin Parker , who died in 1656. Thomas Campbell was indebted to Parker's ballad for his ' Ye Mariners of England,' which, from a musical point of view, is much better known.
