"The Fairy-Queen" PDF 7Mb
Come, come, come, come let us leave the Town
Fill up the bowl
Come all ye songsters of the sky
May the God of Wit Inspire
Now join your warbling voices
See even Night herself is here
I am come to lock all fast
One charming night gives more delight
Hush, no more
Dance for the Followers of Night
If love's a sweet passion
Dance for the Fairies
Dance for the Green Men
Ye gentle spirits of the air
Now the maids and men are making of hay
When I have often heard young maids complaining
Dance for the Haymakers
A thousand ways we'll find
Now the night is chas'd away
Let the fifes and clarions
Entry of Phoebus
When a cruel long winter has frozen the earth
Hail! great parent Hail!
Thus the ever grateful spring
Here's the Summer, sprightly, gay
See, see my many colour'd fields
Next, Winter comes slowly
Thrice happy lovers
O let me weep
Entry dance
Thus the gloomy world
Thus happy and free
Yes, Xansi
Monkey's Dance
Hark, how all things
Hark! the ech'ing air
Sure the dull God of Marriage does not hear
See, I obey
Dance for Chinese Man and Woman
