Purcell's air from the Indian Queen arranged by a fellow Gentleman of the Chapel Royal of a later generation for use in the glee club repertoire.

Lyrics: John Dryden

I attempt from love's sickness to fly in vain,
Since I am myself my own fever and pain.
No more now, fond heart, with pride no more swell;
Thou canst not raise forces enough to rebel.
I attempt from love's sickness to fly in vain,
Since I am myself my own fever and pain.
For love has more power and less mercy than fate,
To make us seek ruin and love those that hate.
I attempt from love's sickness to fly in vain,
Since I am myself my own fever and pain.

Henry Purcell
(1659 - 1695)
