CANTATE (For one voice) "L'amorosa Lontonanza" .....................Bassani
Come, oh beautiful one, and give me peace
For I languish night and day;
My heart for thee pines away with grief
To live on it cannot thus. My dear, to console me Turn your pretty feet this way! Come, my dear, to heal me Of the sorrows that wounded me.
Come, oh beautiful, and give me peace
For I suffer night and day.
FURIBONDO ..................... Handel
The wind sweeps furiously along, disturbing both heaven and earth. So is my soul, agi tated by a great sorrow.
DER DOPPELGANGER ......... Schubert
The night is still, and the streets are deserted, In this house my love had her dwelling of yore;
'Tis long since she from the city departed,
Yet her house still stands on the spot as before.
There stands too, a man, who stares up at her case ment,
And wrings his hands with the weight of his woes; I look on his face with shudd'ring amazement--
The moon doth the form of myself disclose.
Thou pallid fellow, thou worthless double!
Why dare to mimic my love's hard lot, Which many a night gave me grief and trouble,
In former days, on this very spot
LIEBESBOTSCHAFT ........... Schubert
Brooklet, your voice so silvery sweet, Are you so eager my lov'd one to meet Bearer of tidings to her you shall be, Bringing her tenderest greetings from me.
All the dear flow'rs which have bloom'd in her care,
Proud to be worn on her bosom fair, Sweet scented roses with color aglow, Cool and refresh, them as onward you flow.
When on your banks she is dreaming of me
Thinking with longing of joy to be, Whisper a comforting word in her ear, Say that her lover soon will be here.
Sunlight will fade from the sky in the West;
Then sing my dear one to sleep and rest, Whisper of love, little murm'ring stream, While she is wrapt in the sweetest dream.
THE ERLKING...................Schubert
Who rides there so late through night so wild
A loving father with his young child; He clasp'd his boy with his fpnd arm,
And closer, closer to keep him warm. "Dear son, what makes thy sweet face grow so white"
"See, father, 'tis the ErlKing in sight I "The ErlKing stands there with crown and shroud 1"
"Dear son, it is some misty cloud."
"Thou dearest boy, wilt come with me
And many games I'll play with thee; Where varied blossoms grow on the wold,
And my mother hath many a robe of gold." "Dear father, my father, say, didst thou not hear,
The ErlKing whisper so low in mine ear" "Be tranquil, then be tranquil, my child,
'Mong wither'd leaves the wind bloweth wild."
"Wilt come, proud boy, wilt thou come with me
Where my beauteous daughter doth wait for thee; With my daughter thou'lt join in the dance every night,
She'll lull thee with sweet songs to give thee de light," "Dear father, my father, and canst thou not trace
The ErlKing's daughter in yon dark place" "Dear son, dear son, the form you there see
Is only the hollow grey willow tree."
"I love thee well, with me thou shalt ride on my course.
He held to his bosom his poor swooning child. He reach'd that house with toil and dread, But in his arms, lo I his child lay dead!
NIGHT ......................... Rubinstein
While a flickering candle sadly burns, my poems 11 of love for thee run on like an unending stream.
mine.
(Literal translation by S. B.)
BERCEUSE............Modest Moussorgsky
Low, plaintive moaning 1
The light of the candle, nearly burn'd out, flickers dim.
Swinging the cradle, the mother her vigil keeps thro' the whole weary night.
Early at break of day some one approaches,
Death, the merciful, knocks.
Hark! Trembling she turns, and at sight of him shudders.
Why dost thou fear me, my friend
See thro' the window the pale morn is creeping.
Weeping and watching and love thy soul have wearied,
Come rest now a moment,
I will keep watch in thy stead,
I will thy child soothe to deep dreamless slumber;
Sweeter than thine is my song.
"Silence! my child hast thou waken'd moaning!
Anguish is rending my heart!"
Soon in my arms he'll be peacefully sleeping; Hush aby, byoh, bylow 1
"Paler his cheeks grow and weaker his breathing!
Ah, now I pray thee, be still I"
These are good signs and his sufFring will lessen; Hushaby, byoh, bylow I
"Forth, thou accursed onel
With thy caresses
All of my joy thou hast robbed I"
Nay, peaceful sleep to thy child I am bringing; Hush aby, byoh, bylow I
"Pity, have pity, O Death, cease but a moment
Singing thy terrible song I"
See thou, to rest he's been lull'd by my singing: Hushaby, byoh, bylow 1
ETERNAL.....................Erich Wolff
Endless, never changing, Is but great space eternal! All things that are and shall be, All that has seemed unending, Comes and blossoms and grows, Changes, alters--then goes ! Worlds have come and wandered Where worlds today are wandering. Soon in the passage of time, Ours too will follow the others 1 Life here must pass-And lives but a space-Endless, eternal is only The vastness of space 1
(Translated by Gertrude Norman)
AS WE PART............McNair Ilgenfritz
The sweetest flower that grows
I give you as we parti For you, it is a rose 1
For me, it is my heart 1 The fragrance it exhales--
Ah 1 if you only knew 1 Which but in dying fails--
It is my love for you 1 The sweetest flower that grows
I give you as we part. You think it but a rosel
Ah, mel it is my heart I
