Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder - Marcus Stone

Marcus Stone: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

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.

Henry Purcell, “If music be the food of love”, Z. 379, from Gentleman’s Journal, June 1692.

Paul Nicholson, Richard Boothby, Nancy Argenta
