Page 25 - Why look you now, how unworthy a thing you make of me. You would play upon me; you would seem to know my stops; you would pluck out the heart of my mystery ; you would sound me from my loudest note to the top of my compass; and there is much music, excellent voice in this little organ, yet cannot you make it speak. 'Sblood, do you think I am easier to be played on than a Pipe? Call me what instrument you will, though you can fret me, you cannot play upon me.
