'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)

In Cloris all soft charms agree, Z384
Choice Ayres V, 1684
author of text

This appeared in the fifth book of Choice Ayres in 1684 as a three-verse strophic song. Purcell appears to have changed John Howe’s text in a number of places, as comparison with the version of the poem printed the next year in Aphra Behn’s Miscellany shows. Cloris’s universal attraction to men has its down side.
