ENGLISH SONG AND BALLAD MUSIC.
WHEN DAPHNE DID FROM PHCEBUS FLY.
This tune is to be found in Nederlandtsche Q-edenck-Olanck, 1626; in IViesche Lust-Hof, 1634; and in The Dancing Master, from 1650 to 1690.
In the first named it is entitled JPrins Daphne; in the second, When Daphne did from Phoebus fly ; and in the last, Daphne, or The Shepherdess.
A copy of the words will be found in the Eoxburghe Collection, i. 388, entitled " A pleasant new Ballad of Daphne: To a new tune." Printed by the assignees of Thomas Symcocke. It is on the old mythological story of Daphne turned into
a laurel.
Gracefully, and not too slow.
