A 5-minute SATB gem with some divisi for small ensembles or larger community choruses, accompanied on the piano and celebrating music as one of life’s dearest treasures.
|Voicing:||SATB with some divisi|
|Language:||English - Colonel Henry Heveningham (1651 - 1700)|
If music be the food of love,
Sing on till I am fill’d with joy;
For then my list’ning soul you move
To pleasures that can never cloy.
Your eyes, your mien, your tongue declare
That you are music ev’rywhere.
Pleasures invade both eye and ear,
So fierce the transports are, they wound,
And all my senses feasted are,
Tho’ yet the treat is only sound,
Sure I must perish by your charms,
Unless you save me in your arms.
– Colonel Henry Heveningham (1651 – 1700)
