Title: Es soll keiner
First published: 1643
Description: Zoilus (400 - 320 BC) was a Greek grammarian, (in)famous for his relentless criticism on Homer. This apparently gained him the reputation for being a bit of a nag, hence probably this "dedicatory" canon at the beginning of the publication, where the "author" (composer?) defends himself against future critics of his work.
Original text and translations
Es soll keiner Sach verlachen,
er könn dann solche besser machen
wie da mein Sprichwort laut
als nach gemacht.
