'Those who need all of Purcell's songs at their fingertips should invest in Hyperion's three-disk survey of secular songs, with outstanding performances by Barbara Bonney, Rogers Covey-Crump and James Bowman' (The New York Times)
This is an early song, published in 1679 in Playford’s delayed second volume of Choice Ayres and Songs. Amintas is ignoring Celia, who nonetheless vows to remain constant, ready to leap into the breach when her would-be lover is jilted by ‘some inconstant maid’. Purcell’s simple strophic setting is delightfully tuneful.

from notes by Robert King 2003
