The text of this movement is sure to put a smile on the face of the singers and the audience. What a pleasure to perform Baroque music that was composed by an Englishman who delighted in the language! The brief “Air” for sopranos is followed by a second stroph for chorus. This work could add a delightful touch to many a program; the solo could also be sung by a tenor with great effect.
