Of Lichfild nothing is known, except that the dedication of his sole printed set of madrigals (from which this item comes) shows him to have been in the service of Lady Cheney of Toddington, Beds.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Shall I seek to ease my grief?
No, my sight is lost with eyeing.
Shall I speak and beg relief?
No, my voice is hoarse with crying.
O, what remains, but only dying?
