Burst forth my tears
By a fountain where I lay
Can she excuse my wrongs
Come again sweet love doth now invite
Come away, come sweet love
Come heavy sleep
Fine knacks for ladies
Go crystal tears
If my complaints
Now o now I needs must part
Sleep wayward thoughts
Sweet stay awhile
Weep you no more sad fountains

Passetime With Good Company | Jeremy Summerly, editor | Stock Code: 158
Faber Choral Series SATB

A fascinating collection exploring the musical riches from a most colourful period, the Middle Ages. Reflecting the atmosphere of a time where disease and sudden death were counterbalanced by faith and 'joie de vivre', this volume contrasts sacred settings such as the ever-popular 'Gaudete Christus est natus' and previously unpublished 'Jesu dulcis memoria' with such medieval secular classics as 'Sumer is icumen in', 'Agincourt Carol' and the celebratory 'Passetime with good company'.

Fair Oriana | Jeremy Summerly, editor | Stock Code: 156
Faber Choral Series

Elizabeth I, 'Fair Oriana', was one of the most remarkable monarchs in English history: she was well educated, strong, fearless and wise. Towards the end of her reign a musical anthology entitled 'The Triumphs of Oriana' was assembled in order to flatter and divert her. Four superb works from this anthology - plus a fifth, 'Oriana's Farewell' - provide a delightful sequence of madrigals in celebration of the Virgin Queen. This collection of masterpieces from England's Golden Age was published to celebrate the golden jubilee of her namesake, Elizabeth II.
