Below is some beautiful music from the period and beautiful images
Music ‘WHAT IS A YOUTH’
Romeo and Juliet, Lyrics,
‘WHAT IS A YOUTH’
What is a youth? Impetuous fire.
What is a maid? Ice and desire.
The world wags on.
A rose will bloom
It then will fade
So does a youth.
So do-o-o-oes the fairest maid.
Comes a time when one sweet smile
Has its season for a while…Then love’s in love with me.
Some they think only to marry, Others will tease and tarry,
Mine is the very best parry. Cupid he rules us all.
Caper the cape, but sing me the song,
Death will come soon to hush us along.
Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall.
Love is a task and it never will pall.
Sweeter than honey…and bitter as gall
Cupid he rules us all.

I love the music of the Renaissance, way back in the early sixties I played soprano and sopranino recorders and shawm in a renaissance music consort when music of that period was first being appreciated here in the U.S.
