Musick is not given to the Idle, but they must reach it with the Hand of Industry, by putting in Practice the Works and Inventions of skilful Artists; for meerly to Speak and Sing are of nature, and this double use of the Articulate Voice the rudest of Swains of all Nations do make; but to Speak well, and Sing well, are of Art.
