Misc. Comments

Since first I saw your face is usually attributed to Thomas Ford (ca.1580–1648), but interestingly he didn’t compose it! Although Ford was a composer, singer, and viol player in the service of the Prince of Wales (later King Charles I), he is now better known for his efforts in publishing works by unknown or obscure songwriters, and occasionally re-arranging or making his own interpretation of the music. Since first appears in both a four-part vocal setting and a setting with viol accompaniment in his 1607 collection, “Musicke of Sundrie Kindes”, a miscellany of Elizabethan songs.
