Henry Purcell (1659-1695): Once, twice, thrice I Julia try’d, catch a 3 voci. Deller Consort, dir. Alfred Deller.
Once, twice, thrice I Julia try’d:
the scornfull puss as oft deny’d;
and since I can no better thrive
I’ll cringe to ne’er a bitch alive.
So kiss my arse, disdainfull sow!
Good claret is my mistress, now.
