Death is Now a Welcome Guest

from by Austin Wintory

about

Soprano soloist: Holly Sedillos

The lyrics are adapted from Henry Purcell's opera DIDO & AENEAS, libretto by Nahum Tate. Purcell's actual music was not used, or even (intentionally) referenced. Simply the libretto itself.

lyrics

"Darkness shades me. In they arms, let me rest, Death is now a welcome guest."

- adapted from Act III, No. 36, recitative "Thy Hand Belinda"
