Simon Ives was a British composer of the 17th century.
The gillflower (gillyflower, gilliflower) may have been a carnation... or something else. Whatever it is, it must have a delicate fragrance, like this tune.

Like the two previous pieces I introduced earlier (Prelude and Minuet), this was written for the "colascione", a six-string (or six-course) instrument. In French, a "gallichon" and not a "colachon": two rather different instruments, though both translations are found for Brescianello's works, which is rather confusing. At any rate, this is a very pleasurable piece to play on a uke.
