|Contents:||The fatal marriage. The danger is over, the battle is past ; I sigh'd, and own'd my love --
The female virtuosos. Love thou art best of human joys --
A fool's preferment. I sigh'd and I pin'd ; There's nothing so fatal as woman ; Fled is my love, for ever gone ; 'Tis death alone can give me ease ; I'll mount to yon blue coelum ; I'll sail upon the dog-star ; Jenny, gin you can love ; If thou wilt give me back my love --
The Gordian knot unty'd. First music : Chacone ; Second music : Aire ; Minuett ; Overture ; First act tune : Aire ; Second act tune : Rondeau minuett ; Third act tune : Aire ; Fourth act tune : Jigg --
Henry the Second, King of England. In vain 'gainst love I strove --
The Indian emperor. I look'd, and saw within the book of fate --
King Richard the Second, the history of. Retir'd from (any) mortal's sight --
The knight of Malta. At the close of the evening --
The libertine. Nymphs and shepherds ; Prepare, prepare now ghosts draw near ; To arms, to arms, heroic prince --
Love triumphant. How happy's the husband --
The maid's last prayer. Though you make no return to my passion ; No, no, resistance is but vain ; Tell me no more, I am deceiv'd --
The marriage-hater match'd. How vile are the sordid intrigues of the town ; As soon as the chaos was made into form --
The married beau. Overture ; Slow aire ; Hornpipe ; Aire ; Hornpipe ; Jigg ; Trumpet aire ; March ; Hornpipe on a ground ; See where repenting Celia lies --
The massacre of Paris. Thy genius, lo! [2 settings] --
The mock-marriage. Oh! how you protest, and solemnly lie ; 'Twas within a furlong of Edinboro' town ; Man is for the woman made --
Appendix. Songs in The libertine from Folger MS W.b.533. Thou joy of all hearts ; Chloris, when you disperse ; Since liberty, nature for all has design'd ; Woman, who is by nature wild.
