Dowland is great. Check out his guitar compositions (I guess pieces for lute during his time). Absolutely beautiful.

Thank you for the suggestion, Burning Down!

I listened to the melodramatic (and humorous?) song "Come again" by John Dowland, and have posted the lyrics below. Is it just me, or does this song sound packed with sexual innuendos? "More hot than are thy shafts." !!!! Those wild and crazy people of the 1600s!!! I suspect we humans haven't changed that much over 400 years.

"Come Again" lyrics by John Dowland

Come again,
sweet love doth now invite,
thy graces that refrain
to do me due delight.
To see, to hear,
to touch, to kiss,
to die with thee again
in sweetest sympathy

Come again,
that I may cease to mourn
through thy unkind disdain
for now left and forlorn.
I sit, I sigh,
I weep, I faint,
I die, in deadly pain
and endless misery

Gentle love,
draw forth thy wounding dart:
Thou canst not pierce her heart;
For I that do approve.
By sighs an d tears
more hot than are
thy shafts, did tempt while she
for scanty tryumphs laughs

John Dowland - COME AGAIN SWEET LOVE DOTH NOW INVITE LYRICS
