Songs from Scandinavia, Miditerranian region, Africa, Asia etc.
Live with me and be my love
And we all the pleasures prove
And if these pleasures make thee move
Then live with me and be my love...
Be my love
Based on 'The Passionate Pilgrim'
It was a lover and his lass
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
That o’er the green cornfield did pass,
In springtime, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring...
Lover and his lass
'As you like it'- act 5 scene 3
Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade...
Full fathom five
'The Tempest'- act 1 scene 2
Under the greenwood tree
Who loves to lie with me,
And turn his merry note
Unto the sweet bird's throat,
Come hither, come hither...
Under a greenwood tree
'As you like it'- act 2 scene 5
The poor soul sat sighing by a sycamore tree,
Sing willow, willow, willow.
Her hand on her bosom, her head on her knee,
Sing willow, willow, willow...
'Othello'- act 4 scene 3
Honor, riches, marriage, blessing,
Long continuance, and increasing,
Hourly joys be still upon you.
Juno sings her blessings on you
The Tempest'- act 4 scene 1
Where the bee sucks, there suck I.
In a cowslip’s bell I lie.
There I couch when owls do cry.
On the bat’s back I do fly
After summer merrily, merrily shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
Where the bee sucks
'The Tempest'- act 5 scene 1
The lark at heaven's gate does sing
And winking Mary-buds begin
To open their golden eyes.
If in your sleep you living miss
With every thing that pretty is,
My lady sweet, arise...
The lark song
based on 'Cymbeline'- act 2 scene 2
The master, the swabber, the boatswain and I,
The gunner and his mate
Loved Mall, Meg and Marian and Margery,
But none of us cared for Kate;
The master, the swabber...
'The Tempest'- act 2 scene 2
Take, O, take those lips away,
That so sweetly were forsworn;
And those eyes, the break of day,
Lights that do mislead the morn:
But my kisses bring again,
Seals of love, but sealed in vain
Seals of love
Measure for measure'- act 4 scene 1
While you here do snoring lie,
His time doth take.
If of life you keep a care,
Shake off slumber and beware.
The Tempest'- act 2 scene 1
A Midsummer Night's Dream'
act 2 scene 2
O mistress mine, where are you roaming?
O, stay and hear! Your true love’s coming,
That can sing both high and low:
Trip no further, pretty sweeting.
Journeys end in lovers meeting,
Every wise man’s son doth know...
Oh, mistress mine...
'Twelfth Night'- act 2 scene 3
Songs on the texts of William Blake, Francoise Villon, Jean-Baptist Molière, Alexander Pushkin
Love seeketh not itself to please,
Nor for itself hath any care,
But for another gives its ease,
And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
Heaven & Hell...
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.
Am I not a fly like thee?
Or art not thou a man like me?
I Dreamt a Dream! what can it mean?
I dreamt that I was a maiden Queen:
Guarded by an Angel mild:
Witless woe, was ne'er beguil'd!
So rough the goat wil schratch, it can not sleep
So often a pot goes to the well, that it breaks
So good is a man as is his praise
So loud you cry, that Christmas comes
Ballade of comparissons
Buvons chers amis, buvons,
Le temps qui fuit nous y convie ;
Profitons de la vie
Autant que nous pouvons...
Buvons chers amis
Marquise si mon visage
A quelques traits un peu vieux,
Souvenez-vous qu’à mon âge
Vous ne vaudrez guère mieux…
Marquise si mon visage
Once in this our country
Peace and plenty rules
Once upon a Sunday
Holy Church was filled....
Once in our country
Original Russian songs. Modern folk
Songs, written on the texts of traditional Russian rituals
all the scores are available
Oh, you winds, midday breeses
Alilei ljoli loli, alilei ljoli ljoli
Don't blow so hard,
don't disturs the blue sea....
A gray dove has a golden head
A gray she-dove has a guided head,
Embroidered with silk...
It is not a beautiful dove
that walks in the room
and sheds her white feathers...
There walks a Count
He leads his Countess
God bless them...
The Crescent followed the Dawn
He asked her to go with him:
Let's go to look for God,
