Musik am Morgen: Gentle airs, melodious strains (G. F. Händel)


aus dem Oratorium "Athalia" (1733)

Es singt Anthony Rolfe-Johnson.

Gentle airs, melodious strains!
Call for raptures out of woe,
Lull the regal mourners' pains,
Sweetly soothe her as you flow.
Gentle airs. . . da capo
(Libretto: Samuel Humphreys)
