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.

Versión de Jessye Norman

Sixpence None The Richer - Kiss Me

video ; letra
Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

Nick Drake - 'Cello Song'

video ; letra

You would seem so frail
In the cold of the night
When the armies of emotion
Go out to fight.
But while the earth sinks to its grave
You sail to the sky
On the crest of a wave.

La Traviata - Verdi

Sempre Libera Montserrat Caballé - Bergonzi - Milnes - Prêtre (Recorded in 1967)

Amor è palpito
dell´universo intero,
misterioso, altero,
croce e delizia al cor.

Manzanita - La quiero a morir

video ; letra

cuando trepo a sus ojos me enfrento al mar
dos espejos de agua cerrada en cristal
la quiero a morir
solo puedo sentarme solo puedo charlar
solo puedo enredarme solo puedo aceptar
ser solo tuyo, ser solo tuyo
la quiero a morir
