Recording Information
Ballad Title Coridon and Parthenia, / The Languishing Shepherd made Happy. / Or, Faithful Love rewarded. / Being a most Pleasant and Delectable New Play Song. / Here mournful Love is turn'd into Delight, / To this we a Chast amorist Invite; / Where Charming beauty rules its powr's like Death, / To Save or Murder with the self-same breath: / The Noble Swain, whose Youthful Love hath won / So many Mymphs, by Love was here undone: / Languishing faint, on the Gold Ground he lies, / Until the Sun-Shine of Parthenia's Eyes / Dissolv'd the Cloud that did benight his bliss, / And turn'd his Torments into Paradise.
Tune Imprint To the Tune of, When busie Fame.
