VIII. 5. John Dowland was one of the most famous of Elizabethan musicians; his song-books appeared in 1597, 1600, and 1603 ; his “ Pilgrim's Solace, 1612. There are many references to him in Elizabethan and later literature, more especially to his Lachryme, or, Seven Tears figured in seven heavenlie Pavans' (1605); (cp. Bullen's Lyrics from Elizabethan Song-Books).

45. There is no heaven, by holy then'; the line has been variously emended ; Malone reads from an old MS. :

Here is no heaven; they holy then

Begin, when, etc. No satisfactory emendation has been proposed, and perhaps the original reading may be allowed to stand without the comma after heaven':there is no heaven by holy then', i.e., “by that holy time”; others suggest,' be holy then', or by the holy then',

etc.

XX, 1,

Live with me, and be my love'; in England's Helicon and other early versions the line runs, • Come live with me', etc., and in this way it is usually quoted. Two verses found in England's Helicon are omitted in the present version, but included in the 1640 ed., where “ Love's Answer" is also in six quatrains; the additional matter was evidently also derived from England's Helicon. After 1. 12 the following lines are inserted :

A gown made of the finest wool,

Which from our pretty Lambs we pull.
Fair lined slippers for the cold,

With buckles of the purest gold."
The last stanza runs thus:-

The shepherds' swains shall dance and sing,

For thy delight each May morning;
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love."
