Contents: A choir of bright beauties --
A thousand sev'ral ways --
Aaron thus propos'd to Moses --
Ah! cruel nymph --
Ah! how pleasant --
Ah! what pains --
Amidst the shades --
Amintas, to my grief I see --
Amintor, heedless of his flocks --
Ask me to love --
Bacchus is a pow'r divine --
Beneath a dark and melancholy grove --
Beware, poor shepherds --
Cease, anxious world --
Cease, o my sad soul --
Celia's fond --
Corinna is divinely fair --
Cupid, the slyest rogue alive --
Draw near, you lovers --
Farewell, all joys --
Farewell, ye rocks --
Fly swift, ye hours --
From silent shades --
Gentle shepherds --
He himself courts --
Hears not my Phillis --
High on a throne [Version A] --
High on a throne [Version B] --
Honours may crown --
How delightful's the life --
How I sigh --
How peaceful the days are --
I came, I saw --
I envy not a monarch's fate --
I fain would be free --
I love and I must --
I lov'd fair Celia --
I resolve against cringing --
I saw that you were grown so high --
I take no pleasure --
If grief has any pow'r --
If music be the food of love [First setting, version A, Z. 379A] --
If music be the food of love [First setting, version B, Z. 379B] --
If music be the food of love [Second setting, Z. 379C] --
If pray'rs and tears --
In Cloris all soft charms agree --
In vain we dissemble --
Incassum, Lesbia --
Leave these useless arts --
Let each gallant heart. Let formal lovers --
Let us, kind Lesbia --
Love arms himself --
Love is now become a trade --
Love, thou canst hear --
Love's pow'r in my heart --
Lovely Albina --
More love or more disdain --
Musing on cares --
My heart, whenever you appear --
No, to what purpose --
No watch, dear Celia --
Not all my torments --
O solitude --
Oh! fair Cedaria --
Oh! how happy's he --
Olinda in the shades unseen --
On the brow of Richmond Hill --
Pastora's beauties when unblown --
Phillis, I can ne'er forgive it --
Phillis, talk no more --
Pious Celinda --
Rashly I swore --
Sawney is a bonny lad --
Scarce had the rising sun --
See how the fading glories --
She loves and she confesses too --
She that would gain --
She, who my poor heart possesses --
Since one poor view --
Since the pox --
Spite of the godhead --
Stripp'd of their green --
Sweet, be no longer sad --
Sweet tyraness --
Sylvia, now your scorn give over --
Sylvia, 'tis true you're fair --
The fatal hour --
They say you're angry --
This poet sings --
Through mournful shades --
Turn then thine eyes --
Urge me no more --
We now, my Thyrsis --
What a sad fate [Version A] --
What a sad fate [Version B] --
What can we --
What hope for us remains --
When first Amintas --
When first my shepherdess and I --
When her languishing eyes --
When I a lover --
When my Aemelia smiles --
When Strephon found --
When Thirsis did the splendid eye --
While Thirsis, wrapp'd --
Whilst Cynthia sang --
Who but a slave --
Who can behold --
Why so serious --
Ye happy swains --
Young Thirsis' fate.
Other Titles: Songs.
Responsibility: Henry Purcell ; edited under the supervision of the Purcell Society by Margaret Laurie.
