Excerpt from Seventeenth Century Lyrics

Some experience in compiling selections has taught me that it is scarcely possible, so far as the reader is concerned, to take too little trouble in explaining the method on which they are compiled. I shall only say as briefly as possible that I have construed the term 'Seventeenth Century' liberally, but not, I hope, too liberally, by extending the terminus a quo a little into the sixteenth. The death of Dryden, the last singer for many years who really sang in anything but comic vein, coincides so exactly with the century's close that no trespass there was necessary, or possible.
