"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  1. How very lovely! I don't think I have come across this beautiful English music before but I shall be following it up as soon as I can.

    Thank you once again for a little relief from the day-to-day with these delightful Sunday reflections.

  2. Hi Opsimath, he was a contemporary of Shakespeare by all accounts & werote for As You Like It. He's following in the footsteps of Tallis & Byrd but in a lighter vein with less emphasis on sacred music. Apparently, Byrd was his teacher at one point. You'll probably like 'Sing we and chant it' too. Very upbeat :-)
