Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Song: Come here’s the good health, Master Steward...

by William Caesar . A Catch for Three voices , in D minor


Come here’s the good health, Master Steward proposes,
to our members that elsewhere are fuddling their noses,
though now they desert us, we shall catch ‘em one day,
we’ll drink and merry with what they must pay,
but though they are absent let’s do ‘em no wrong,
for their liquor we’ll pay ’em with a song.
