Child : Woe is me : Full score
Composer: William Child (1606 - 1697)
Lyrics: Psalm 120, v.4
Child was adept at setting biblical text to make a contemporary political point. It is probable that this piece commemorates the period abroad of the Stuart court during the commonwealth, the use of false relations highlighting the pain of exile.
