Rest Sweet Nymphs (Pilkington) – viola, guitar



Instrumental arrangement of a Renaissance song.

The words of the first verse are:
Rest, sweet nymphs, let golden sleep
Charm your star brighter eyes,
While my lute the watch doth keep
With pleasing sympathies.
Lulla, lullaby. Lulla, lullaby.
Sleep sweetly, sleep sweetly,
Let nothing affright ye,
In calm contentments lie.
