When her languishing eyes said 'Love!', Z432

composer
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.
