LONDON: Printed by THOMAS SNODHAM, for M. L. and A. B. 1624.

TO THE RIGHT VVORshipfull, And worthy of much Honor, Sir PETER LEIGHE of Lyme, KNIGHT.

Honoured Sir:

TO him that shall demand of me, why I presume to send this fruit of my (now aged Muse) to seeke patronage vnder your worth: my answere shall be this; Aske the little sparks why they dare flie vpwards towards the glorious Sunne, or the small Riuerets and Brookes, why they with a hastie boldnesse striue to be engulphed into the bosome of the vaste Ocean.

Nature her selfe hath taught all her workes to tend vnto their proper place: and the Subiects of Vertue can neuer of­fer their seruice, nor her Priests bring their sacrifice, but where their soueraigne Queene erects a Temple.

Sir: Your Noble disposition inuites all eyes to behold the generous respect you beare to all the poore trauellers, that labour in the tedious iourney which leades to Merit and Perfection: And if I, the meanest and vnablest of thousands of those, (encouraged by all mens generall Admiration of your noble Courtesies, and imboldened by your particu­lar acceptation of such former seruices, as my good hap hath beene to performe in some of your implovments) may now procure the Reflection of the least beame of your faire Aspect, vpon this my little Bundle of Rushes, that I carry towards the strewing of the flore of that Amiable Temple, where that Great Goddesse hath her Chaire, the Muses sit in the Quier, and the Noise is nothing but Melodie and Harmonious Sweetnesse: It will infinite­ly refresh my wearie steppes: and (happily) yet enliue my fainting spirits, that I may lagge on, yet one lourney more, (if not in the middest,) yet in the Rereward of those many expert and able seruants of this Soueraigne Queene, to doe her and you some fur­ther seruice. To which I deuote the Remainder of my poore endeauours, and my selfe to be

Euer your Worships at command, FRANCIS PILKINGTON.

To my approoued Friend, Master FRANCIS PILKINGTON, Batchelar of Musicke.

A Sonnet.
THose great Atchieuements our Heroicke Spirits
Haue done in Englands old or later Victories,
Shall we attribute wholly to the Merrits,
Of our Braue Leaders? And faire Industries
Which their not-named Followers haue exprest
Lie bid? And must the Matchlesse Excellencies
Of Bird, Bull, Dowland, Morley, and the rest
Of our rare Artists, (who now dim the lights
Of other lands) be onely in Request?
Thy selfe; (and others) loosing your due Rights
To high Desert? nay, make it (yet) more plaine,
That thou canst hit the Ayres of enery vaine.
Their praise was their Reward, and so 'tis thine:
The Pleasure of thy paines all mens: and mine.
William Webbe.

To Master FRANCIS PILKINGTON, Batchelar of Musicke.

ARt's praise, and Skill's high pitch, are not so tyed
To bankes of Po, or siluer Thames (we see)
But Ioues faire bird may haunt fine streames beside,
And chaunt sweet layes on brinkes of Antique dee.
Old Chester is not so with Eld ore-laine,
That where contention is for praise, shee then
Should not her old-borne title still maintaine,
And put in, for her claime to chiefe of Men.
Witnesse more Instances hereof, then cast
Into few lines can be (some larger Quill
Shall labour that) Witnesse thy first and last
Rare-fram'de composures. And this witnesse will
Thy choice for Patron: one for glorious fame,
Chiefe in our Clyme, Grace to thy worke, thy name.
Thine and the Muses friends of Chester, Henry Harpur.

THE SECOND SET Of Madrigals, and Pastorals, of 3. 4. 5. and 6. Parts; Apt for Violls and Voyces: Newly Composed by FRANCIS PILKINGTON, Batchelar of Musicke, and Lutenist, and Chaunter of the Cathedrall Church of CHRIST, and blessed MARY the Virgin, in Chester.

LONDON: Printed by THOMAS SNODHAM, for M. L. and A. B. 1624.

TO THE RIGHT VVORshipfull, And worthy of much Honor, Sir PETER LEIGHE of Lyme, KNIGHT.

Honoured Sir:

TO him that shall demand of me, why I presume to send this fruit of my (now aged Muse) to seeke patronage vnder your worth: my answere shall be this; Aske the little sparks why they dare flie vpwards towards the glorious Sunne, or the small Riuerets and Brookes, why they with a hastie boldnesse striue to be engulphed into the bosome of the vaste Ocean.

Nature her selfe hath taught all her workes to tend vnto their proper place: and the Subiects of Vertue can neuer of­fer their seruice, nor her Priests bring their sacrifice, but where their soueraigne Queene erects a Temple.

Sir: Your Noble disposition inuites all eyes to behold the generous respect you beare to all the poore trauellers, that labour in the tedious iourney which Merit and Perfection: And if I, the meanest and vnablest of thousands of those, (encouraged by all mens generall Admiration of your noble Courtesies, and in boldened by your particu­lar acceptation of such former seruices, as my good hap hath beene to performe in some of your implovments) may now procure the Reflection of the least beame of your faire Aspect, vpon this my little Bundle of Rushes, that I carry towards the strewing of the flore of that Amiable Temple, where that Great Goddesse hath her Chaire, the Muses sit in the Quier, and the Noise is nothing but Melodie and Harmonious Sweetnesse: It will infinite­ly refresh my wearie fleppes: and (happily) yet enliue my fainting spirits, that I may lagge on, yet one Iourney more, (if not in the middest,) yet in the Rereward of those many expert and able seruants of this Soueraigne Queene, to doe her and you some fur­ther seruice. To which I deuote the Remainder of my poore endeauours, and my selfe to be

Euer your Worships at command, FRANCIS PILKINGTON.

To my approoued Friend, Master FRANCIS PILKINGTON, Batchelar of Musicke.

A Sonnet.
THose great Atchieuements our Heroicke Spirits
Haue done in Englands old or later Victories,
Shall we attribute wholly to the Merrits,
Of our Braue Leaders? And faire Industries
Which their not-named Followers haue exprest
Lie hid? And must the Matchlesse Excellencies
Of Bird, Bull, Dowland, Morley, and the rest
Of our rare Artists, (who now dim the lights
Of other lands) be onely in Request?
Thy selfe, (and others) loosing your due Rights
To high Desert? nay, make it (yet) more plaine,
That thou canst hit the Ayres of every vaine.
Their praise was their Reward, and so 'tis thine:
The Pleasure of thy paines all mens: and mine.
William Webbe.

To Master FRANCIS PILKINGTON, Batchelar of Musicke.

ARt's praise, and Skill's high pitch, are not so tyed
To bankes of Po, or siluer Thames (we see)
But Ioues faire bird may haunt fine streames beside,
And chaunt sweet layes on brinkes of Antique dee.
Old Chester is not so with Eld ore-laine,
That where contention is for praise, shee then
Should not her old-borne title still maintaine,
And put in, for her claime to chiefe of Men.
Witnesse more Instances hereof, then cast
Into few lines can be (some larger Quill
Shall labour that) Witnesse thy first and last
Rare-fram'de composures. And this witnesse will
Thy choice for Patron: one for glorious fame,
Chiefe in our Clyme, Grace to thy worke, thy name.
Thine and the Muses friends of Chester, Henry Harpur.

THose great Atchieuements our Heroicke Spirits
Haue done in Englands old or later Victories,
Shall we attribute wholly to the Merrits,
Of our Braue Leaders? And faire Industries
Which their not-named Followers haue exprest
Lie hid? And must the Matchlesse Excellencies
Of Bird, Bull, Dowland, Morley, and the rest
Of our rare Artists, (who now dim the lights
Of other lands) be onely in Request?
Thy selfe, (and others) loosing your due Rights
To high Desert? nay, make it (yet) more plaine,
That thou canst hit the Ayres of euery vaine.
Their praise was their Reward, and so 'tis thine:
The Pleasure of thy paines all mens: and mine.

ARt's praise, and Skill's high pitch, are not so tyed
To bankes of Po, or siluer Thames (we see)
But Ioues faire bird may haunt fine streames beside,
And chaunt sweet layes on brinkes of Antique dee.
Old Chester is not so with Eld ore-laine,
That where contention is for praise, shee then
Should not her old-borne title still maintaine,
And put in, for her claime to chiefe of Men.
Witnesse more Instances hereof, then cast

Of our rare Artists, (who now dim the lights
Of other lands) be onely in Request?

THE SECOND SET Of Madrigals, and Pastorals, of 3. 4. 5. and 6. Parts; Apt for Violls and Voyces: Newly Composed by FRANCIS PILKINGTON, Batchelar of Musicke, and Lutenist, and Chaunter of the Cathedrall Church of CHRIST, and blessed MARY the Virgin, in Chester.

LONDON: Printed by THOMAS SNODHAM, for M. L. and A. B. 1624.

TO THE RIGHT VVORshipfull, And worthy of much Honor, Sir PETER LEIGHE of Lyme, KNIGHT.

Honoured Sir:

TO him that shall demand of me, why I presume to send this fruit of my (now aged Muse) to seeke patronage vnder your worth: my answere shall be this; Aske the little sparks why they dare flie vpwards towards the glorious Sunne, or the small Riuerets and Brookes, why they with a hastie boldnesse striue to be engulphed into the bosome of the vaste Ocean.

Nature her selfe hath taught all her workes to tend vnto their proper place: and the Subiects of Vertue can neuer of­fer their seruice, nor her Priests bring their sacrifice, but where their soueraigne Queene erects a Temple.

Sir: Your Noble disposition inuites all eyes to behold the generous respect you beare to all the poore trauellers, that labour in the tedious iourney which leades to Merit and Perfection: And if I, the meanest and vnablest of thousands of those, (encouraged by all mens generall Admiration of your noble Courtesies, and imboldened by your particu­lar acceptation of such former seruices, as my good hap hath beene to performe in some of your implovments) may now procure the Reflection of the least beame of your faire Aspect, vpon this my little Bundle of Rushes, that I carry towards the strewing of the flore of that Amiable Temple, where that Great Goddesse hath her Chaire, the Muses sit in the Quier, and the Noise is nothing but Melodie and Harmonious Sweetnesse: It will infinite­ly refresh my wearie steppes: and (happily) yet enliue my fainting spirits, that I may lagge on, yet one Iourney more, (if not in the middest,) yet in the Rereward of those many expert and able seruants of this Soueraigne Queene, to doe her and you some fur­ther seruice. To which I deuote the Remainder of my poore endeauours, and my selfe to be

Euer your Worships at command, FRANCIS PILKINGTON.
