As Vesta was from Latmos hill descending
Thomas Weelkes Lyrics


As Vesta was from Latmos hill descending,
She spied a maiden queen the same ascending,
Attended on by all the shepherds swain,
To whom Diana's darlings came running down amain,
First two by two, then three by three together,
Leaving their goddess all alone, hasted thither;
And mingling with the shepherds of her train,
With mirthful tunes her presence entertain.
Then sang the shepherds and nymphs of Diana,
Long live fair Oriana.

For all you music students out there:
0:06 - “hill” - the melody reaches a peak each time on the word “hill”
0:10 - “descending” - descending scales on the word “descending”
0:20 - “ascending” - ascending scales on the word “ascending”
0:30 - “attended on” - the soprano starts singing, then everyone else joins in a beat later, as though “attending on” to the first voice
0:48 - “running down amain” - descending scales, fast rhythm (amain means quickly in old English)
1:04 - “first two by two” - features two voices at a time
1:07 - “then three by three” - features three voices at a time
1:10 - “together” - sung in tutti
1:15 - plagal cadence on “goddess”
1:17 - “all alone” is sung solo by the soprano voice
1:58 - “long” is held as a pedal point in the bass voice
feel free to suggest more!
