Default What Is a Day (Philip Rosseter)

What Is a Day (Philip Rosseter)

https://youtu.be/M06W9SIEVMY

Philip Rosseter (1568 5 May 1623) was an English composer and musician, as well as a theatrical manager. In 1604 Rosseter was appointed a court lutenist for James I of England, a position he held until his death in 1623. Rosseter is best known for A Book of Ayres which was written with Thomas Campion and published in 1601. Rosseter's lute songs are generally short, homophonic, with minimal repetition or word painting (imitating textual meanings through music), while at the same time being rich in musical invention. This piece is selected as one of RCM (The Royal Conservatory of Music) level 2 repertoire.


Poem:
What is a day, what is a year of vain delight and pleasure?
Like to a dream is endless dies,
And from us like a vapour flies;
And this is all the fruit that we find, which glory in worldly treasure.
