Κλείνουμε το αφιέρωμα στους μουσικούς του Σεπτέμβρη με τον Henry Purcell, κορυφαίο Βρετανό συνθέτη όλων των εποχών. Ακούμε αποσπάσματα από την “ημιόπερα” The Fairy Queen, βασισμένη στο “Όνειρο Θερινής Νυκτός” του Ουίλιαμ Σαίξπηρ, στην έκδοση των Scholars Baroque Ensemble.
Την ανατριχιαστική άρια “Hush, No More” ερμηνεύει ο μπάσος
Adrian Peacock.

We ‘re closing the September musicians tribute, with
Henry Purcell, greatest British composer of all time. We hear excerpts from the “semi opera” The Fairy Queen, based on William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, in the Scholars Baroque Ensemble version.
The chilling aria “Hush, No More” is performed by bass
Adrian Peacock.

00:00 Act II. ‘Hush, No More, Be Silent All’
05:11 Act V. Prelude
06:22 Appendix. Third Act Tune. Hornpipe
07:20 Act III. Dance For The Fairies

Hush, no more, be silent all.
Sweet repose has clos’d her eyes,
soft as feather’d snow does fall!
Softly, softly steal from hence.
No noise disturb her sleeping sense.
