Rest awhile, you cruel cares

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

 
Rest awhile, you cruel cares brings us back to a more courtly kind of love—a relief after the desperate lust of the preceding song—the lover declaring his torments, his dilemmas and the truth of his avowals; the name of Laura reminds us again of Petrarch.
