Purcell - Dido's lament

Emma Kirkby video ; libreto Dido & Eneas

(Take my hand)
Thy hand, Belinda, darkness shades me,
On thy bosom let me rest,
More I would, but Death invades me;
Death is now a welcome guest.
When I am laid in earth, May my wrongs create
No trouble in thy breast;
Remember me, but ah! forget my fate.

versión de Maria Ewing (tristísimo)

Emma Kirkby otra vez, York 2007 with the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists conducted by Peter Seymour.
