This collection is part of a 5-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.
