FOUR SHAKESPEARE SONGS
Orpheus with His Lute, from "Henry VIII"......Sullivan
Hark, Hark, the Lark! from "Cymbeline" . . . Castelnuovo-Tedesco
Come Away, Death! from "Twelfth Night"......Quilter
Come, Buy! from "A Winter's Tale"......Buzzi-Peccia
The cool grass and the poplar's shade invite to dreams from noontide sun. But when the fiery disk is spent and day is done, then let thine arms enfold me, Phidyle, and bliss is won.
Ouvre ton coeur (from original score of "Carmen").....Bizet
The shadows gather--stars gleam above; come, open thy heart to my love!
But lately in dance I embraced thee; now silent in death dost thou sleep, while the pale moon shines in on thy pillow, and I kneel by thy side and weep.
Day comes--night falls.....I see thee everywhere . . thy image I hold in
my heart. Until death, all my songs and tenderness will be for thee!
The Steinway piano and the Skinner organ are the official concert instruments of the University Musical Society
A.RS LONGA VITA BREVIS
La Maja y el ruisenor (from "Goyescas")......Granados
Danse apache (from "The Jewels of the Madonna") . . Wolf-Ferrari
Isaac van Grove
(Dedicated to Miss Moore)
Tus ojos negros.............deFalla
What ails your bright black eyes, I cannot tell. They often wound me, yet they please me well .... They pledge so much that later they deny.
Ma Curly-Headed Babbie...........Clutsam
Aria, "Un bel di," from "Madama Butterfly"......Puccini
"One fine day we'll notice a ship on the horizon, and he will come. I do not go to meet him .... I stay upon the hillock and wait, and never weary of
the long waiting. He will call, 'Butterfly, dear baby wife of mine'.....
This will all come to pass, he will return, I know."
Arranged by Isaac Van Grove.
