A catch noteworthy for being for five voices. This edition comprises a modern realisation, and a statement of the piece in its original specialised format.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Do, re mi, fa, sol, la,
La, sol, fa, mi, re, do, do, fa.
For shame Sir, in charity, gargle your throat.
The raven ne'er croak'd so horrid a note.
O charming, soothing, bravo by Jove,
That ravishing note wakes the passion of love.
Poor fellow, when first he made singing his choice
He was cut for the simplet, instead of his voice.
