I sang "Lov's a sweet passion" with my choir...some yeras ago...
all the purcell's music for choir is enjoyable.
Yes, many of his melodies, such as this are what I have heard called "ear-wigs".... Much of the Fairie Queen...In my mountain house, that was often heard, since I had all the music close at hand, more or less....I am getting more anxious to return to SF permanently, and begin serious curation... I will now find this tune on YT and, think of you, my friend...
Dear friends - Please do not take this too seriously! This is an example of Elizabethan melancholy...
However, that there is no interest in this by the community, speaks of the melancholy-state of aesthetics at DA...
Now, O now, I needs must part,
Parting though I absent mourn.
Absence can no joy impart:
Joy once fled cannot return.
While I live I needs must love,
Love lives not when Hope is gone.
Now at last Despair doth prove,
Love divided loveth none.
Sad despair doth drive me hence,
This despair unkindness sends.
If that parting be offence,
It is she which then offends.
Dear, when I am from thee gone,
Gone are all my joys at once.
I loved thee and thee alone,
In whose love I joyed once.
And although your sight I leave,
Sight wherein my joys do lie,
Till that death do sense bereave,
Never shall affection die.
Dear if I do not return
Love and I shall die together,
For my absence never mourn,
Whom you might have joyed ever.
Part we must, though now I die.
Die I do to part with you.
Him despair doth cause to lie,
Who both lived and died true.
