Callinocastore me! HENRY V.,iv. 4. 4 ; “(calmie custure me!” Cambridge ,) Boswell showed that Callino, castore me is an old Irish song preserved in Playford's Musical Companion, 1673. I may add here that Mr. Chappell gives, from the Ms. known as Queen Elizabeth's Virginal Book, three of the earliest Irish airs extant, one of which is Callino casturame,—Popular Music of the Olden Time, etc., vol. ii. p. 793, sec. ed.; and that in Dekker's Satiromastix, 1602, I find Tucca saying, “Nay, your oohs, nor your Callin-oes cannot serue your turne.” Sig. L 4.
