An item from Deuteromelia, London 1609. The ground, stated as bars 1-8, is Browning, a popular song of the 1590s which was popular with composers as the basis for instrumental variations.

This edition comprises a modern realisation, and a statement of the piece in its original format.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Browning madam, so merrily we sing.
The fairest flow'r in the garden green
Is in my love's breast full comely seen;
And with all the others compare she can,
Therefore now let us sing Browning madam.
