'A treasury of good performances. It could hardly be otherwise with this composer and this roster of singers' (Fanfare, USA)

When her languishing eyes said 'Love!', Z432
Choice Ayres and Songs III, 1681
author of text

This is an early song, published in 1681 in Playford’s third book of Choice Ayres and Songs. The poet, falling in love with a lady, was far too easy a target for her and she has now rejected him, to his great hurt. Purcell’s setting is made all the more attractive by its unpredictably individual melodic line.

from notes by Robert King 2003
