TO

SIR JOHN LEMAN ROGERS, Bart.,

OF BLACHFORD, IN THE COUNTY OF DEVON,

PRESIDENT OF

THE MADRIGAL SOCIETY.

“I was aye telling you
“ Auld sangs would ding* the new.”

(Scottish Ballad of Luckie Nancie”.)

My dear Sir John,

WHEN I look back upon the few years that have elapsed since first I had the pleasure of conferring our notes togetherat the meetings of the Madrigal Society, I am almost surprised to find how soon our predictions with regard to the superior merits of auld sangs over new have been verified.

At our private meetings, few except members could have an opportunity of hearing Madrigals ;

* Beat.
