Honour, riches, marriage-blessing
It is normally said that ‘Honour, riches, marriage-blessing’ from the Act IV masque in The Tempest was written for the 1746 production, but it only survives in a much later manuscript, and is in Arne’s later Italianate style, with brilliant passage-work for the voice. It is therefore likely to be for the 1776 revival of the play at Covent Garden.
