Orpheus with his lute
Maurice Greene’s suave setting of ‘Orpheus with his lute’ is not known to have been written for a stage production. It uses the bipartite form popular in the early eighteenth century with contrasted settings of each verse, the second imitating the ‘billows of the sea’ with flowing passages in the bass.
