Notes
Something different - the Wedding Chorus from Act 1 of William Tell - get the galop out of your head. No Robin Hood here. This light, and charming - the French would say “tres jolie”!

Text
Love is winging,
Bells are ringing,
Hymen bringing
Joy and love,

Every maiden blossom laden,
All around love is found.
Garlands twining never pining
Joys abound, let laughter sound.

Love her ever; leave her never;
none may sever Hymen’s bond.

Hearts are blending
Hymen sending
Love unending,
ever fond.


(English words by Edward Miller)
