April is in my mistress' face,
And July in her eyes hath place;
Within her bosom is September,
But in her heart a cold December.
About the piece:
April is in my mistress' face written by Thomas Morley is one of the best-known and shortest of English madrigals; it was published in 1594, and appears to be based on an Italian text by Livio Celiano, and set by Orazio Vecchi in 1587.
- Thomas Morley (1557 – early October 1602)
