‘Flow My Tears’
by John Dowland
Flow, my tears, fall from your springs!
Exiled for ever, let me mourn;
Where night's black bird her sad infamy sings,
There let me live forlorn.
John Dowland (1563-1626), English Renaissance composer, lutenist, and singer. He was influenced by popular consort songs and the dance music of the day. The Whole Book of Psalms published in 1592 includes six pieces by Dowland. The composition featured in The Ockendon Witch was published in his Second Booke of Songs or Ayres in 1600.
