English-born Thomas Campion was known in his day not only as a poet but also as a composer. He set many of his poems to music, including "Cherry Ripe." Two of his collections are A Book of Airs (1601) and The Third and Fourth Books of Airs (ca. 1617). His interest in the relationship of music and poetry prompted him to write a discourse on English metrics, "Observation in the Art of English Poesy" (1602).
