Words by Colonel Henry Heveningham (1651-1700), using the first few words from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night as a starting point. Henry Purcell made several settings of these words. This is my D minor arrangement of one of them.Versions are available for flute/cor anglais/viola/clarinet/low voice and pianoand for flute/cor anglais/viola/clarinet/low voice and guitarFor the instrument and piano versions the pdf also includes the separate instrumental part.If Music be the food of lovesing on,sing on tillI am fill'd with joy:For then my list'ning soul you moveto pleasures that can never cloy.your eyes,your mien, your tongue declarethat you are music ev'ry wherePleasures invade both eye and earso fierce the transports are they wound,and all my senses feasted are, tho' yet the treat is only sound.Sing on, fair nymph, enchant me still;such charms may wound, they can not kill.
