Description: A setting of text from Milton's La Allegro with a cantus firmus of "L'homme armé"
Lap me in soft Lydian airs,
Married to immortal verse,
Such as the meeting soul may pierce,
In notes with many a winding bout
of linked sweetness long drawn out
With wanton heed and giddy cunning,
the melting voice through mazes running,
Untwisting all the chains that tie
the secret soul of harmony.
