|Contents:||Songs of three voices: Fly Love aloft to Heav'n. Away, thou shalt not love me. Ay me, can every rumour? Weep O mine eyes. Dear pity, how, ah how? Ye restless thoughts.--Songs of four voices: What needeth all this travail? O fools, can you not see? Alas what hope of speeding? Lady when I behold. Thus saith my Cloris bright. Adieu sweet Amarillis.--Songs of five voices: Die hapless man. I fall, I fall, O stay me. And though my love abounding. I always beg. Thus Love commands. Lady, your words do spite me. Alas, what a wretched life. Unkind, O stay thy flying. I sung sometimes my thoughts. Flora gave me fairest flowers.--
Songs of six voices: Sweet love, if thou wilt gain. Lady, when I behold. When shall my wretched life? Of joys and pleasing pains. My throat is sore. Cruel behold my heavy ending. Thou art but young thou say'st. Why dost thou shoot?--The Lady Oriana (from The Triumphs of Oriana)--I am quite tired with my groans. O God the rock of my whole strength (from Leighton's Tears and lamentations).
