My love is fair

composer
1867; SATBB; first performed by the composer's own choir in London on 31 January 1867
author of text
1584; from The Arraignment of Paris

 
The five-part My love is fair took its text from George Peele’s pastoral comedy The Arraignment of Paris (1584) and is a buoyant miniature in two verses. Full of florid counterpoint, occasional moments of chromaticism (such as ‘with Cupid’s curse’) reveal its romantic origins; it was first sung by Leslie’s choir in London on 31 January 1867.
