Instrumental arrangement of the madrigal by Charles Villiers Stanford based on a traditional Irish tune.
Very suitable as a short and sweet upbeat ending to a concert as the musicians and audience prepare to retire to the bar.

The original words begin:

Quick! We have but a second,
Fill round the cup while you may
For time, the churl, hath beckoned
And we must away, away!

Grasp the pleasure that’s flying
For oh, not Orpheus’ strain
Could keep sweet hours from dying
Or charm them to life again.

The pdf contains score and parts
The sound sample is an electronic preview.
