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.
