WILLIAM BYRD (BIRD)
English church music composer and organist for Elizabeth I
(1543 - 1623)

My mind to me a kingdom is;
  Such perfect joy therein I find,
    That it excels all other bliss
      That God or Nature hath assign'd,
        Though much I want that most would have,
          Yet still my mind forbids to crave.
      - [Mind]

My minde to me a kingdome is,
  Such perfect joy therein I finde
    As farre exceeds all earthly blisse
      That God or Nature hath assignde
        Though much I want that most would have
          Yet still my minde forbids to crave.
      - his rendering of Dyer's verse when he set it to music
        [Mind]
