Shall I strive with words to move; Now, O now I needs must part; Come again! Sweet love doth now invite; A Dream
The Shooting of his Dear; I will give my love an apple; The Soldier and the Sailor
Stephen Goss: The Miller's Tale, for solo theorbo (world première)
Retir'd from any Mortal's sight; O solitude, my sweetest choice; When first Amintas sued for a kiss
