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)
