Though Amaryllis Dance in Green by William Byrd
Though Amaryllis dance in green, like fairy queen, and sing full clear, Corina can with smiling cheer: Yet since their eyes make heart so sore, Hey ho, chill (I will) love no more.
My sheep are lost for want of food, and I so
would That all the day I sit and watch a herdmaid gay Who laughs to see me sigh so sore. Hey ho, chill love no more.
Love ye who list I force him not, sith God it wot, The more I wail, the less my sighs and tears prevail; What shall I do but say therefore: Hey ho, chill love no more.

The Chamber Singers of Southeast Iowa, a primarily a cappella vocal group, was founded in 1991 by music director Elaine Reding to bring the best of world choral music to the Fairfield community. Over the past 25 years, the group has performed over 500 choral works from 40 countries in a wide range of vocal styles, bringing great musical delight and enrichment to the Southeast Iowa region. The group was originally founded to give voice to the finest Renaissance choral music, but the repertoire quickly expanded to include the full range of the choral literature—from medieval works and choral classics to new contemporary pieces, in styles including pop arrangements, vocal jazz, gospel tunes, spirituals, and world music.
