Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Item: The Drinking Catch

by By Mr Purcell . For Three voices, in C major

Song: Drink on, ’till night be spent and Sun do shine,...

Drink on, drink on, drink, on 'till Night be spent & Sun do shine, did not the Gods give anxious Mortals Wine, to wash all Care, to wash all Care & Trouble from ye Heart? why Yn so soon, Why then so soon shou'd Jovial Fellows part? Come let this Bumper, let this Bumper for the next make Way, Who'se sure to live, who's sure to live, and drink another Day.
