Description: Lyrics first published after March, 1616, in the poem "To Celia". Most likely attribution of the music is to John Wall Callcott (see the discussion at page 203 of James J Fuld’s The Book of World Famous Music”, and also page 151 of William Emmett Studwell's The Americana song reader). See also Drink to me only with thine eyes (Elizabeth Turner), earlier setting of Jonson's poem by Elizabeth Turner.
