All ye whom Love or Fortune hath betrayed

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

 
All ye whom Love or Fortune hath betrayed is structurally similar to Who ever think or hopes or Dear, if you change, with four ‘all ye’s instead of four ‘who’s or four ‘if’s in the first half; the ‘hook’ once again is the second half, with a technical display of a rising chromatic vocal line, in contrary motion against a falling bass line—most effective.
