Christopher Tye, The Lord will Come and not be Slow
Edward F. Rimbault set a section of Christopher Tye's The Actes of the Apostles to a different text than Tye's original, extremely banal, one. It has to be said, however, that Rimbault's text, "I will call and cry to thee, O Lord", from an "early Primer" was not a lot better than Tye's versification of Acts. I have accordingly set John Milton's well-known hymn, "The Lord will Come and not be Slow" to Dr. Rimbault's arrangement of Dr. Tye's music.
John Milton (1608-1674)
