Title: So far from my delight
Composer: Alfonso Ferrabosco I
Original text and translations
So far from my delight what cares torment me,
Fields do record it and valleys and woods and mountains,
And running rivers and reposed fountains,
Where I cry out, and to the heav'ns lament me
None other sounds but tunes of my complaining.
Nymph of the groves or pleasant bird once heareth
Still recount I my grief and her disdaining
To ev'ry plant that groweth or blossom beareth.
