An item from Hilton's collection, Catch that Catch can, London 1658. The "old ground", stated as bars 1-8, is Browning, a popular song of the 1590s which was popular with composers as the basis for instrumental variations. The allusion would not have been lost on Hilton's performers.
This edition comprises a modern realisation, and a statement of the piece in its original format.
