This collection is part of a 6-book set of musical settings of lyrics to songs in Shakespeare's plays. This grouping opens with a melancholy prelude “I Shall No More to Sea,” followed by the woozy “Come Thou Monarch of the Vine.” “Oh Heart” is set in a doo-wop style and the set ends with a folk-like setting of “When That I Was and a Little Tiny Boy.” The extended coda builds to sixteen parts as it repeats various bits of the poem.
