Aafje Heynis, Sea Pictures by Sir Edward Elgar


Sea slumber Song Sea_Pictures by Sir Edward Elgar Aafje Heynis - Dutch Contralto http://www.cantabile-subito.de/Contraltos/Dutch_Contraltos/dutch_contraltos.html Text by Roden Berkely Wriothesley Noel See Slumber Song Sea-birds are asleep, The world forgets to weep, Sea murmurs her soft slumber-song On the shadowy sand Of this elfin land; I, the Mother mild, Hush thee, oh my child, Forget the voices wild! Hush thee, oh my child, Hush thee. Isles in elfin light Dream, the rocks and caves, Lulled by whispering waves, Veil their marbles Veil their marbles bright. Foam glimmers faintly white faintly white Upon the shelly sand Of this elfin land; Sea-sound, like violins, To slumber woos and wins, I murmur my soft slumber-song, my slumber song Leave woes, and wails, and sins. Ocean's shadowy might Breathes good night, Good night... Leave woes, and wails, and sins. Good night...Good night...
