Little is known of Nathaniel Patrick that isn't derived from the title-page of his one printed work (now lost): "Songs of Sundrye Natures, whereof some are Divine, some are madrigalles and the rest psalms and hymns in Latin, by Nathaniel Patrick, sometyme Master of the Children of the Cathedral Church of Worcester and organist of the same" (1597). The small handful of consort songs that survive in manuscript are probably derived from this source.
Lyrics: Anon

Send forth thy sighs, the witnesses of woe.
Pour down thy plaints, the signs of thy unrest.
Let trickling tears from forth thy fountains flow,
For these same weeds become thy calling best.
Let sobs, let sighs, let plaints, let tears and all
Bear witness just of this thy fatal fall.
