Manuscript from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Robert Jones' Own Hand (Part 1)
"The love of change hath changed the world throughout"

This song, in Robert Jones' own hand, was scaned from a poor xerox of a reproduction of the manuscript in the 'Modern Language Quarterly Vol. 1 1940'.
Jones hand written second verse.
The poem was also set by Richard Carlton in his Madrigals to Fiue Voyces, 1601
