The Advice

First line:
Mortals wisely learn to measure
from Muses Delight, 1754; music from Ezio, HWV29
author of text

The Advice set by Mr Handel, is from the Muses Delight (1754) a collection of popular songs which contains some simplified versions of the original pieces and prints only the melodies and bass lines with no figuring or instrumental lines. The music from this song is from the close of Handel’s opera Ezio (HWV29), of 1732, ‘Stringo al fine il mio contento’ which develops into the final chorus but this time set as a solo song with cheerful light text in English.
