Wilt thou, unkind, thus reave me of my heart?

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

 
Wilt thou, unkind, thus reave me? is a song of parting, but the impression of sadness is dissipated by the singer’s relentless begging for parting kisses, and Dowland has responded to this ambiguity in his setting with a quick tempo and rhythmic game playing.
