Child was adept at setting biblical text to make a contemporary political point. It is probable that this piece commemorates the period abroad of the Stuart court during the commonwealth, the use of false relations highlighting the pain of exile.

Lyrics: Psalm 120, v.4

Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell with Mesech: and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar.

William Child
(1606 - 1697)

Child : Woe is me : illustration


Woe is me

(T.T.T.B.Kbd.)
