Flow not so fast ye fountains (Dowland) for alto, guitar and optional melody instrument)


Arrangement of John Dowland’s “Flow not so fast ye fountains” with guitar accompaniment. I have added an optional descant which can be played on a flute (or any other melody instrument if required).

Flow not so fast, ye fountains;
What needeth all this haste?
Swell not above your mountains,
Nor spend your time in waste.
Gentle springs, freshly your salt tears
Must still fall dropping from their spheres.
