Monumenta Musica Neerlandica
"D a p h n e"
(also know as doen D. d'over schoone Maeght v. Eyck).
from the Camphuysen manuscript
This tune also to be found in der fluyten lusthof, is one of the most popular. Very melodic. Text and tune are found in early seventeent-century England: "a pleasant new ballad of D(aphne)". In 1622 translated in Dutch in the Friesche Lust-hof.
When D. from faire Phoebus did flie
the west winde most sweetly did blow in her face
her silken scarfe scare shaddowed her eyes
the God cried, o pitie and held her in chace
Tarry and turn thee sweet nimph stay
Lion nor Tyger doth the follow:
turn the faire eyes and look this away
o turn o prettie sweet,
and let our red lips meet:
pittie O D., pittie o pitty me....
