‘If music be the food of love play on.’
Let mellow harps arouse the appetite
And ‘lark ascending’ serenade the night.
If melody enhances sweet romance
Then may the air be filled with joyful song
And flute with graceful timbre play along.
If music serve to kindle glowing hearts,
May instruments in harmony resound
That love in perfect unison be found.
