Misc. Comments

This was an entry into a competition to set the Shakespeare text, (from the play Henry VIII), specifically for lute and voice, in a manner influenced by golden age Elizabethan lute song. This popular text has been set by many composers, including Edward German, Sullivan, Ivor Gurney and Vaughan-Williams, though apparently not by any Jacobean composers.

There is the original lute version here and a guitar version which is slightly clumsy because the chords used exploit the position of the 3rds in the lute tuning. Scordatura might help here.
