First published: c.1590 in manuscript

Description: Little is known of Nathaniel Patrick that isn't derived from the title-page of his one printed work (now lost): "Songs of Sundrye Natures, whereof some are Divine, some are madrigalles and the rest psalms and hymns in Latin, by Nathaniel Patrick, sometyme Master of the Children of the Cathedral Church of Worcester and organist of the same" (1597). The small handful of consort songs that survive in manuscript are probably derived from this source.
