John Dowland - Come Again
Sung by the Virtual Downton Choir
Our singers come from all parts of the US, from Canada, the UK, France, Japan and Germany. And they never ever met…
Come again! sweet love doth now invite. / Thy graces that refrain / To do me due delight, / To see, to hear, to touch, to kiss, to die, / With thee again in sweetest sympathy.
All the night my sleeps are full of dreams, / My eyes are full of streams. / My heart takes no delight / To see the fruits and joys that some do find / And mark the storms are me assign’d.
Gentle Love, draw forth thy wounding dart, / Thou canst not pierce his heart; / For I, that do approve / By sighs and tears more hot than are thy shafts / Did tempt while he for triumph laughs.
This was fun indeed! Please listen, like, reblog, review and join us, if you like to sing. The next project is already in the pipeline. :D
Such a treat to hear the finished piece before I toddle off on holiday!! It’s such a wonderful project to be a part of - if you’re not already involved but feel interested, do join in!!
Hope you all have a lovely, lovely week - happy flailing and tumblring all you lovely people :) :) To the anon who sent a prompt yesterday, I’ll work on it, just so you know I’ve seen it! :)
