The sweet Latin solo O Jesu, mi dulcis by André Campra is the basis of this arrangement by R. H. Clark.
He has translated the text into English, given us a second verse based on the Psalms, and added an optional flute part.
The charming melody is the star of this arrangement, and could be sung medium-voice soloist or by a unison choir (either treble, men, or mixed).
The flute part, not part of the Campra original, can be omitted, but it does add a pleasant Baroque flavor.
This could also be played on violin or oboe with equal effect.
