TBB a cappella, with brief tenor divisi. (2:40)
The text by William Cartwright (1611-1643) pokes fun at lovers who claim to have passed beyond desires of the flesh to enjoy a purely spiritual connection. This is the most challenging sing of the “To the Ladies” set.
This work is part of a set of three pieces entitled “To the Ladies” and was premiered by the Southwest Minnesota State University Men’s Glee Club.
