Consort song (for voice with viols) from an early seventeenth century manuscript. The text is a theatre song from Marston's comedy "The Dutch Courtezan", 1604.
Lyrics: John Marston

The dark is my delight, so is the nightingale;
My music's in the night, so is the nightingale's;
My body is but little, so is the nightingale's;
I love to sleep against the prickle, so doth the nightingale.
