Fair Phyllis I saw sitting all alone is an English madrigal by John Farmer. The song describes a person who saw a young shepherdess sitting alone feeding her sheep near a mountain. The other shepherds did not know where she was at the time. Her lover goes looking for her and wanders through the hills playing hide and seek. Eventually he finds her, and when he does, they kiss. Great short madrigal for AATB.
