O all true faithful hearts

composer
1619; composed to mark the recovery of King James I from illness
author of text

 
‘O all true faithful hearts’ interposes choruses like victory-galliards to encourage public rejoicing in April 1619 over an avoided narrow shave: ‘A thanks Giving for the kings happy recoverie from a great dangerous sicknes’. His ominous nephritis, aggravated by melancholy after Anna’s death in January, had alarmed doctors; many subjects were also concerned, by now mellowing to his genial if autocratic foibles.
