Story behind the song
Thomas Campion's "Follow Your Saint" #X from the Rossetter (& Campian) A Booke of Ayres 1601.
This is my recording of Thomas Campion's "Follow Your Saint"
from the Rossetter A Booke of Ayres 1601.
This is Take 1 and both Stanzas are here.
On April 9, 2015 - I started with guitar tracks for Take 1 & 2.
April 15, 2015 - I did the keyboard vocal guide to Take 1 of Thomas Campion's "Follow Your Saint".
April 17, 2015 - I did the vocal to Take 1 of Thomas Campian's "Follow Your Saint". - way ahead of Take 2.
April 21, 2015, recording the keyboard bass harpsichord to
Take 1 of "Follow Your Saint" to finish my recording of this song -
- On April 20, I did the keyboard vocal guide to Take 2 and found I had missed a couple of beats and decided to abandon this 2nd Take. However the next day (April 22) I went ahead and did the bass for 1st stanza
Follow your Saint, follow with accents sweet ;
Haste you, sad noates, fall at her flying feet :
There, wrapt in cloud of sorrow pity move,
And tell the ravisher of my soul I perish for her love.
But if she scorns my never-ceasing pain,
Then burst with sighing in her sight, and never return again.
All that I song still to her praise did tend,
Still she was first ; still she my songs did end.
Yet she my love and Music both doeth fly,
- The Music that her Echo is and beauties sympathies ;
Then let my Noates pursue her scornful flight :
It shall suffice that they were breath'd and dyed for her delight.
