Loathe to Depart

Post by Foxe »

I'm fairly sure I haven't asked this one before...

Is anyone familiar with a song (and can point me towards words and music) called 'Loathe to depart', possibly around in the early 17th century?

There are two versions of this.
Firstly as a round (in Ravenscroft and Lant) http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/ravenscroft ... depart.pdf
And secondly as a melody found in the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. Probably not by Farnaby although he wrote divisions on it.

Remarkable! For any early 17thC song Ravenscroft is my first port of call - I must have missed it.

Thanks Tamsin :D
