Sylvia, now your scorn give over, Z420

The Banquet of Musick II, 1688
author of text

Sylvia, now your scorn give over was published in Henry Playford’s second book of The Banquet of Musick in 1688. Purcell sets the poet’s ultimatum to Sylvia in lighthearted style: if she does not reciprocate he will not wait around.
