Kris McDermott noted:

>All  sonnets can be sung to the tune of "Fortune My Foe."

I found that "They that have power to hurt and will doe none" fits the
tune of "I'll take you home again, Kathleen."  Since several have
mentioned "Poor soul, the centre of my sinful earth" or "Two loves I
have of comfort and despair,"  I ran those thru the tune and find that
they fit too.

As to the saints & sinners question, was there ever any actual music for
Fulke Greville's Chorus Sacerdotum?   It's a paraphrase of Romans 7,
"The good that I would I do not . . ."

Cleo Laine and  John Dankworth  recorded " Cleo Laine - Shakespeare and
all
that Jazz" on Phillips 6382 014  241 in 1972 International Series.  The
sonnets included were

18      Shall I compare thee

23      As an imperfect actor on the stage/Who with his fear is put
besides his part

24      Mine eye hath played the painter and hath stelled/Thy beauty's
form in table of my heart

40      Take all my loves, my love, yea take them all/What hast thou
then more than thou hadst before?

147     My love is as a fever, longing still/For that which nurseth the
disease as well as

If music be the food of love; O mistress Mind (sic); Winter (LLL); It
was a lover and his lass; Dunsinane Blues;  Blow, blow thou winter wind;
Witches, fair and foul (Macbeth & MND); Fear no More; Sigh no more
Ladies; and The Compleat Works.

I don't think any of these is quite what you're looking for?
