Nikolai Dubovskoy – Il silenzio
Henry Purcell (1659?-1695): An Evening Hymn ‘Now that the sun hath veiled his light’, Z193
Text by Dr. William Fuller, Lord-Bishop of Lincoln
Now, now that the sun hath veil’d his light
And bid the world goodnight;
To the soft bed my body I dispose,
But where shall my soul repose?
Dear, dear God, even in Thy arms,
And can there be any so sweet security!
Then to thy rest, O my soul!
And singing, praise the mercy
That prolongs thy days.
Emma Kirkby (soprano), Christopher Hogwood (organ) and Anthony Rooley (lute)
