English organist Thomas Morley composed this madrigal around the year 1600, using a love poem from William Shakespeare's comedy As You Like It (Act V, Scene III):
It was a lover and his lass,
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino
That o'er the green cornfields did pass.
In spring time, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding a ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring.
Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
