Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Item: A Catch the words by Cob. Allistree

by Set by H. Purcell . For Three voices, in G major

Song: Full bags, a brisk bottle, and a beautiful face,...

Full Bags, a brisk Bottle, and a Beautiful Face, are the three greatest Blessings poor Mortals embrace, but alas we grow Muckworms if Bags do but fill, & a bonny gay Dame often ends in a Pill: then hey for brisk Claret, whose Pleasures ne'er waste, by a Bumper we're rich, and by two we are chast.
