"And Now 'Tis Time to Go and Spend an Hour or So in Drinking" is a chorus for men's voices, arranged by H.E. Baker with a translated lyric by J. Michael Dyack. The work is based on a duet by Johann Sebastian Bach, first performed in 1742 as part of the Peasant Cantata. The Virginia Glee Club used the work as part of their show closing in the 1930s under Harry Rogers Pratt and has performed it occasionally since then.
