Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Morning is Charming: Hunting Song
I hope the tune is better than the lyrics in the first post. If Handel wrote anything to this libretto, he'd have done it as a personal favour rather than following his muse.

It basically doesn't scan. It may have been tidied up since, though a eulogy to a banned bloodsport in its land of origin, doesn't exactly lend itself to a happy sing song
