No. 16 - Vocal Gavotte - "Join in Pleasure."

MIDI File

Chorus: Join in pleasure, dance a measure,
Fondly treasure hours so bright;
Prim sedately, not too stately,
Coldness greatly mars delight.
Lightly step with graceful bearing,
Suitable precision show,
Finish comes of long preparing,
"Vis-avis" and "dos a dos".
O fairest belle with bravest beau,
Stately, but with hearts aglow,
In thrall sublime but measured time
Mated all elated go!
O fairest belle with bravest beau,
Stately, but with hearts aglow,
In thrall sublime but measured time
Mated all elated go!
   
  Stepping sprightly, laughing lightly,
Noisy chatter fills the throng;
Animation cloaks flirtation,
Festive joys we'll still prolong.
When the music din is loudest
Sighing swains may dare their fate,
Plead with meekest, dare the proudest
In the mazy tête-à-tête.
O fairest belle with bravest beau,
Stately, but with hearts aglow,
In thrall sublime but measured time
Mated all elated go!
O fairest belle with bravest beau,
Stately, but with hearts aglow,
In thrall sublime but measured time
Mated all elated go!
