Sweeter than Roses: Early English Song

  • St John's Church Peterborough (map)

Henry Purcell If music be the food of love 

John Dowland  Flow my tears

John Blow  Oh! That mine eyes would melt into a flood

John Dowland  Weepe you no more, sad fountaines             

Henry Purcell  I attempt from love’s sickness   

Henry Purcell  If love’s a sweet passion from The Fairy Queen   

Henry Purcell  An Evening hymn                                                      


John Morley  It was a lover and his lass                                      

John Dowland  Come again: Sweet love doth now invite                         

John Dowland  Can she excuse my wrongs                                                          

John Dowland  If my complaints could passions move                   

Henry Purcell  There’s not a swain on the plain                                       

John Blow  O turn not those fine eyes away           

John Morley  O mistress mine                                                 

Henry Purcell  Come away, fellow sailors from Dido and Aeneas                                              

Henry Purcell  The Plaint from The Fairy Queen                                        

Henry Purcell  Sweeter than roses
