Come away, come sweet love

composer
1597; The First Booke of Songs or Ayres
author of text

 
Come away, come sweet love is a song of passionate entreaty, and the erotic temperature is high; the tempo is restless, and breathless—literally, there are no rests in the voice part—and the successive changes in rhythm heighten the effect of panting desire. The imagery seems to come in part from Propertius (1.2) praising his naked mistress.
