Good Counselfor unison voices & piano
Text: English (Geoffrey Chaucer)
Duration: 2'30''
Difficulty: 2/5

A part song by the eminent English choral composer Herbert Howells.

Text
Fly from the press, and dwell with soothfastness;
Suffice unto they good, though it be small,
For hoard hath hate, and climbing tikelness;
Preise hath envy, and weal is bleny over all.
Savor no more than thee behoven shall,
Rede well thyself, that other folk canst rede,
And Truth thee shalt deliver it is no drede.

That thee is sent, receive in buxomness,
The wrestling of this world asketh a fall.
Here is no home, here is but wilderness.
Forth, pilgrim, forth! Forth beast, out of thy stall,
Look upon high, and thank the God of all.
Weivith thy lust, and let thy ghost thee lead,
And Truth thee shalt deliver it is no drede.

‘To life’s pilgrim’
by Geoffrey Chaucer
