There, whence that Musick seemed heard to be, Was the fair Witch, her self now solacing With a new Lover, whom through Sorcery And Witchcraft, she from far did thither bring: There she had him now laid a slumbering, In secret Shade, after long wanton Joys; Whilst round about them pleasantly did sing Many fair Ladies, and lascivious Boys.

      LAWES, HENRY (–), musician, was born at Dinton, Wiltshire, and baptised there 1 Jan. –6. The statement that he was born in at Salisbury seems to be due to Warton's misquotation in his life of Milton of the inscription on Lawes's portrait at Salisbury. This book is concerned with a hundred years of musical drama in England. It charts the development of the genre from the theatre works of Henry Purcell (and his contemporaries) to the dramatic oratorios of George Frideric Handel (and his). En route it investigates the objections to all-sung drama in.
