If music be the food of love
Last updated: 02.02.20
I came across If music be the food of love in Twice 44 Sociable Songs whilst looking for material to perform with Dr. Rosteck. It was inspired by the famous opening lines of Shakespeare's play "Twelfth Night" and were transformed into a two verse lyrical poem by Colonel Henry Heveningham and set to music by Henry Purcell in the 1690s. We may of rehearsed it a few times but we never performed it in public.
