Edition notes: Based on the 1892 Arkwright edition, but transposed up a tone. Although this version is set as SSATTB, the first tenor range would make SSAATB possible too. Revised files uploaded 19/06/19.

Ah! cruel, hateful fortune!
Now must I death importune,
Since that I am of all my hope deprived,
Nor but for sorrow had my soul survived.
Only this hope doth rest for my contentment,
That fortune, tir'd, will yield me some amendment.
