Flow not so fast ye fountains for violin, viola and guitar


Instrumental arrangement of a lute song by John Dowland
with added countermelody.

The original madrigal begins:

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.
