Music in Shakespearean Tragedy

By F. W. Sternfeld | Go to book overview

I. INDEX OF LYRICS
THIS INDEX endeavours to list all of Shakespeare's lyrics, whether they occur in tragedies, comedies or histories. Some spoken poems have been included when they are likely to have been set to music before 1650, and mere allusions to lyrics and ballad tunes have also been recorded. The pages containing the music of the song are indicated in bold type. First lines are quoted as they occur in Shakespeare ('Then they for sudden joy . . .', 'When griping grief . . .') with appropriate cross references to other versions ('Some men for sudden joy . . .', 'Where griping grief . . .'). The main entry is usually by first line but when the title is better known main entry is given under the title, e.g., 'Walsingham'; or a cross-reference has been made, e.g., 'Willow Song'. In some instances, a reference to a ballad tune is unmistakeable, in others merely likely, but an attempt has been made to cover both of these categories. The list of references, enclosed in square brackets, includes, in the case of Shakespeare's lyrics:
a. Location in the plays by act, scene and line (the numbering follows that of the Globe edition).
b. Location in the F text. Since the Folio has separate paging for Comedies, Histories and Tragedies, page references are preceded by the abbreviations C, H, or T. For instance, 'In youth when I did love' [ Ham., V.i.67; F, T, 277] indicates Folio, Tragedies, p. 277. Since Troilus and Cressida follows Henry VIII ( Histories, pp. 205-232) in the Folio, without page numbers, numbers have been supplied editorially, e.g., 'Love, love, nothing but love' [ Troil., III.i. 125; F, H, 246]. When a play is not printed in the Folio ( Pericles, Two Noble Kinsmen) or when a lyric does not occur in the F text but only in Q, this is so indicated, e.g., 'Come o'er the burn, Bessy' [ Lr., III.vi.27; Q].
c. Discussion in such works as Chappell, Wooldridge, Naylor, etc. Most of these are tabulated in the List of Abbreviations. In the few cases where other authorities are cited they can be identified with the help of the Bibliography or the Addenda, e.g., Chappell, Roxburghe; or Addenda, Ringler, Sidney. Usually, the authorities listed in the index supplement those given on previous pages of this work but for the sake of convenience page numbers in Chappell and Wooldridge are always given.
A Robin, jolly Robin, s.v. 'Hey Robin, jolly Robin'
Ad Lydiam, s.v. 'Lydia bella . . .'
Alack when I look back [ William Hunnis; Brit. Mus. Add. MS 15117; Rollins, Dainty Devices, pp. 107, 260], 35
Alas by what mean may I make ye to know [ John Heywood], 30; 47
Alas my love ye do me wrong, s.v. 'Greensleeves'
All perform their tragic play, s.v. 'Lapis Lazuli'
All that glisters is not gold [ Mer. V., II.vii.65; F, C, 171]
And let me the canakin clink [ Oth., II.iii.71; F, T, 319], 26; 144-146; fitted to 'Joan Sanderson', 146, to 'Soldier's Life', 146; framed by prose, 159
