Title: Seven Songs from the Age of Shakespeare from the Folger Collection AE41 cover
Composers: William Corkine, Michael East, Robert Parsons and Anonymous
Editor: David Greer
Reference: AE41
Price (GBP): 3.50
Description: These seven songs, none of which is known to have been published previously, occur as manuscript additions to Elizabethan and Jacobean madrigal prints in the collection of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D.C. One is by Robert Parsons the younger (c.1590–c.1645), two are by Michael East (born c.1580), two are by William Corkine (fl. 1610–17), and two are anonymous. They include a setting (very different from Gibbons’) of The silver swan and a song for the fall of a cardinal which appears to come from a play, conceivably from Shakespeare and Fletcher’s Henry VIII. For mixed voices, SATB, SSAT or SSATB, or S/A with three instruments, probably originally viols. iv + 19 pages. ISMN 979 0 57039 185 1.
