12.Nor com’st thou yet (Hero’s complaint to Leander)
Hero and Leander, according to Roger North, writing in his (first) "Musicall Grammarian", was composed shortly after Lanier’s return from his travels in Italy, 1625-28. The stylistic features of the cantata would support this claim. North also states that "The King was exceedingly pleased with this pathetick song, and caused Lanneare often to sing it, to a Consort attendance while he stood next, with his hand upon his shoulder." In his second "Musical Grammarian" North once more comments on the cantata and quotes the opening measures, set in the bass clef. Taking North’s statements at face value, Peter Holman (Director of The Parley of Instruments) has prepared a reconstruction of Hero and Leander for baritone and strings.
