GUEST,pavane Tune Req: Flora's farewell (5) Tune Req: Flora's farewell 18 Dec 03


While researching Famous Flower of serving men (Very old, dating to 1666 at least) I came across the name of a tune, and several old songs to the apparently the same tune under different names.

Does anyone know if this tune is actually in existence, or has it been lost?

Song names are:
Loves downfa(l)
Flora's farewell (or The shepherds love-passion song)
written by Laurence Price, before 1679 (and presumably before 1666)
Famous Flower of serving men

Tunes mentioned are:
A thousand times my love commend (Maybe the original name)
Flora's farewell
Summertime
True love rewarded with loyalty
