Come away, come, sweet love
Last updated: 03.11.23
Come away, come, sweet love by John Dowland is from The First Booke of Songes or Ayres (1597).
I sang the bass voice of an SATB arrangement when auditioning to join a small mixed Bremen group [Christian, Henner, Maja, Marlene] after my time in the Collegium Musicum Bremen. Its three verses of attempted seduction are redolent. with the florid English of Shakespeare's Elizabethan days. The arrangement is written in F♭-major and in C (common tims)
I have been unable to find the arrangement'ss source and it is therefore listed in Geoff's Choral Odds and Ends..
The source may be the same for Say, Love if Ever Thou Didst Find
