Heart's Music HEART'S MUSIC (Campion, Vaughan Williams) Tune thy music to thy heart; Sing thy joy with thanks, and so thy sorrow. Though devotion needs not art, Sometime of the poor the rich may borrow. Strive not yet for curious ways; Concord pleaseth more the less 'tis strained. Zeal affects not outward praise, Only strives to show a love unfeigned. Love can wondrous things effect, Sweetest sacrifice all wrath appeasing. Love the Highest doth respect, Love alone to Him is ever pleasing. Text by Thomas Campion (1567-1620) Set by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), 1954. JIB oct99
