Introduction
Tomkins probably wrote this piece as a lament for Henry, Prince of Wales and heir to the throne of Britain, who died while still in his teens in 1612. Thereafter the work lived a double life: church choirs sang it, but Tomkins himself published it in a set of madrigals, made for use by solo voices to sing at home.
