- Edition notes: Based on #12664, with corrections, especially to the misplaced underlay of the Quintus. In most cases, the correct position of the lyrics is obvious from the word emphasis and comparison with other parts. Otherwise, the underlay in the Christoph Konig version has been used.

Title: Mars in a fury
Composer: Thomas Weelkes
Original text and translations
Mar in a fury ‘gainst Love’s brightest queen,
Put on his helm and took him to his lance,
And marching to the mount this warrior was seen,
And there his ensigns did the god advance,
And by heaven’s greatest gates he stoutly swore,
Venus should die for she had wrong’d him sore.
