Che cos’è dunque l’amore, se non tormento?

Philip Rosseter (1567 o 1568 - 5 maggio 1623): What then is love but mourning?, ayre (1601). Alfred Deller, haute-contre, e Desmond Dupré, liuto (Parigi, 16 dicembre 1972).

What then is love but mourning,
What desire but a selfburning,
Till she that hates doth love return,
 Thus will I mourn,
 Thus will I sing,
Come away, come away my darling.

Beauty is but a blooming,
Youth in his glory entombing,
Time hath a while which none can stay,
 Then come away,
 While thus I sing,
Come away, come away my darling.

Summer in winter fadeth,
Gloomy night heav’nly light shadeth,
Like to the mourn are Venus’ flowers,
 Such are her hours,
 Then will I sing,
Come away, come away my darling.
