(on five "Sonnets from the Portuguese" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning)
The Steinway is the official piano of the University Musical Society
Tenor--Comfort ye, My people, saith your God; speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her in?iquity is pardon'd. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low; the crooked straight, and the rough places plain.
Chorus--And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
Bass--Thus saith the Lord of Hosts: Yet once a little while, and I will shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all na?tions; and the desire of all nations shall come. The Lord, whom ye seek,
shall suddenly come to His temple, e'en the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, He shall come, saith the Lord of Hosts.
But who may abide the day of His coming and who shall stand when He appeareth For He is like a refiner's fire.
Contralto--Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Emmanuel: God with us.
Contralto and Chorus--O thou that tellcst good tidings to .inn, get thce up into the high mountain! Lift up thy voice with strength! Lift it up, be not afraid! Say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! Arise, shine, for thy light is come; and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee!
Chorus--For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the govern?ment shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Ever?lasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
La Regatta Veneziana (Tre canzonette)......Rossini
Avanti la regatta (Before the Gondola Race)
A young Venetian girl is watching a gondola race in which her lover is a participant. In these three song gems, which Rossini wrote in 1835, he takes her through the various stages and excitements of the race: On the balcony waves the flag. Come and take it. Don't delay. Run, hurry. You cannot fail me waiting so anxiously. Hurry.
Co passa la regatta (There Goes the Regatta)
I am here and you are nearing the half-way mark. The northern wind is rising and how I tremble. The current is in your favor. I see him, he is second! Ah, what excitement is in me. Courage, row, summon all your strength and you will be the victor. Your boat is advancing and you look at me.
Dopo la regatta (After the Regatta)
Take a kiss, and another one, my darling Momolo. Rest, and I will wipe your brow. I knew you would win the prize. I proclaim you the victor. You are without equal in all the world.
Adieux a la vie (Elegy on one note).......Rossini
Six Songs............Schubert
Suleika I
The two Suleika songs are addresses to two winds of love, East and West. The East Wind cools the aching of the heart and its whisper brings a thousand greetings from the lover.
Nacht und Traume
Blessed night descends bringing forgetfulness in dreams ... 0 Night, come back and bring us dreams unending.
Die Liebe hat gelogen
Love has deceived me; I am betrayed, alas, and forsaken! O unhappy heart, cease your beating!
Lightly speed my songs of yearning through the night to thee ...
Klarchens Lied, from Goethe's Egmont
Gladness and sadness, then gladness again Tearful and fearful in wild soaring pain; Shouting to heaven or moaning with woe, Happiness none but a lover can know.
Suleika II
Balmy West Wind let your soft and tender sighing cool the burning eye of sorrow. Hasten to my love and tell him how happy we shall be when he returns.
for some to have pity on Him, but there was no man, neither found He any to comfort Him.
Behold, and see if there be any sor?row like unto His sorrow.
Soprano and Chorus--How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things.
Their sound is gone out into all lands, and their words unto the ends of the world.
Bass--Why do the nations so furious?ly rage together Why do the people imagine a vain thing The kings of the earth rise up, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His anointed.
Chorus--Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their yokes from us.
Tenor--He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh them to scorn; the Lord shall have them in derision.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
Chorus and Audience--Hallelu?jah! for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.
The kingdom of this world is become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever. King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Soprano--I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. And tho' worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God I for now is Christ risen from the dead, the first fruits of them that sleep.
Chorus--Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Bass--Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twin?kling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
The trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Chorus--Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, and hath redeemed us to God by His blood, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. Blessing and honor, glory and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever. Amen.
Drei Lieder der Ophelia.......Richard Strauss
Wie erkenn ich mein Traulieb vor andern nun How should I your true love know From another one By his cockle hat and staff, And his sandal shoon ...
Guten Morgen, 's ist Sankt Valentinstag Tomorrow is St. Valentine's Day All in the morning betime, And I a maid at your window, To be your Valentine .. .
Sic trugen ihn auf der Bahre bloss
They bore him barefac'd on the bier; Hey non nonny, nonny, hey nonny; And in his grave rained many a tear, Fare you well, my dove! . . .
La Mort d'Ophelie (Ballade)........Berlioz
In her gentle madness, Ophelia followed the stream, picking periwinkle, butter?cup, and opal-coloured iris to hang upon a willow. She lost her footing and fell; for a few moments she floated on the current, singing an ancient ballad, like some water-born nymph. But then her dress, weighted with water, drew the poor creature below, leaving her melodious song hardly begun.
The orphan slave girl, Zaide, sings of the beauties of Granada and of her longing for its Moorish splendor.
Chevaux de bois (Merry-go-round)......Debussy
Turn, turn, merry wooden horses! Turn a hundred, a thousand times! It's astonishing how dizzy one gets going round and round in that crazy circle. But already they are calling to supper and night is falling fast. The sky is like velvet and golden stars appear. Turn to the joyous sound of the drums ... still turn!
Serenaders and fair listeners chat idly beneath the whispering branches. There's Tircis, and Aminta, and the eternal Clitandre, and there's Damis, too, who writes many a love song to disdainful ladies. Their short silken jackets, their long trailing gowns, their elegance, their gladness and their soft blue shadows whirl in the ecstasy of moonlight, pinke and grey; and the mandolin chatters in the trembling breeze.
Flamenco Meditations........Carlos Surinach
(on five "Sonnets from the Portuguese" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning) How do I love thee, let me count the ways Yet, love, more love, is beautiful indeed When our two souls stand up erect and strong The face of all the world is changed, I think If thou must love me, let it be for nought except for love's sake only
