The Madrigal Singers

ISSUE:  Spring 1928

Led by the Children of the Chapel

They made be madrigals to-night,
And they were lyric men
Renewing still the luted flight
  Of all the songs of Ben;
    O children of the Chapel, sing,
    As in that far melodious spring.

Unvext the dulcet numbers flow,
  As on enchanted ears
They fell to ease a fresher woe
  Than loads our later years;
    O children of the Chapel, still
    With music bid us to good-will.

Under the woven, dim, concent
  Are tones that steal across
The ages from a past content
  Upon our present loss;
    O children of the Chapel, be
    Our masters yet, for Charity.
