Back to Ye Gods of Love
YE GODS OF LOVE. Scottish. The tune under this title appears in Aberdeen musician John Forbes' Cantus, Songs and Fancie, 1662, according to Robin Williamson, who says it is related to an air in Queen Elizabeth's Virginal Book of 1591 entitled "Irish Ho-Hoane (The)" (a mangled attempt at the Gaelic word ochone or lament).
