FROM THE FAIR LAVINIAN SHORE. English, Air (4/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The song appears in Academy of Compliments (1664). Jackson thought the words to have been by Shakespeare, on manuscript evidence, while the setting was by John Wilson. Kines (1964) says, "it is an early example of many pseudo-peddler songs which became popular in the 17th century."
