V. Can she excuse my wrongs


The words to this song may have been written by the Earl of Essex, about his stormy relationship
with Queen Elizabeth. [Pou82, page 226ff] This would explain why Dowland calls the instrumental
version of the tune (Page L-34), published after both Elizabeth and Essex were dead, The Earl of
Essex Galliard.
