Subject:        Shakespearean Sheet Music

One of my students is preparing a group performance of Twelfth Night
2.3, and she has asked me about the availability of sheet music for the
song performed by Feste and Sir Toby in that scene.  I have sent her to
a few of books on Shakespeare and music (Peter Seng, The Vocal Songs in
the Plays of Shakespeare; John Long, Shakespeare's Use of Music; Edward
Naylor, Shakespeare and Music) but I doubt that these will provide the
help she is looking for.

Can anyone advise me on this?

My classroom is fortunate enough to have a piano in it, so the group
hopes to play the music live, a la Trevor Nunn's setting in his film.
(A film which, by the way, I find to be a marvelous teaching tool in
many respects.)

I appreciate any help, either privately or on-list (if this is deemed of
general interest).
