One of Purcell's two-part songs (Z517) arranged by a fellow Gentleman of the Chapel Royal of a later generation for use in the glee club repertoire.
Lyrics: Anon

Were I to choose the greatest bliss
That e'er in love was known,
'Twould be the greatest of my wish
T'enjoy your heart alone.
Kings might possess their kingdoms free,
And crowns unenvied wear,
They should no rival have of me,
Might I reign monarch there.
