Page 116 - gainst that season comes Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated, The bird of dawning singeth all night long...
Page 216 - ON ST CECILIA'S DAY, MDCOVIH. i. DESCEND, ye Nine! descend and sing ; The breathing instruments inspire, Wake into voice each silent string, And sweep the sounding lyre! In a sadly-pleasing strain Let the warbling lute complain : Let the loud trumpet sound, Till the roofs all around The shrill echoes rebound ; While in more lengthen'd notes and slow, The deep, majestic, solemn organs blow.
Page 216 - The deep, majestic, solemn organs blow. Hark! the numbers soft and clear Gently steal upon the ear ; Now louder, and yet louder rise, And fill with spreading sounds the skies : Exulting in triumph now swell the bold notes, In broken air, trembling, the wild music floats ; Till, by degrees, remote and small, The strains decay, And melt away, In a dying, dying fall.
Page 204 - By Music, minds an equal temper know, Nor swell too high, nor sink too low. If in the breast tumultuous joys arise, Music her soft, assuasive voice applies ; Or, when the soul is press'd with cares, Exalts her in enlivening airs.
Page 204 - Pours balm into the bleeding lover's wounds : Melancholy lifts her head, Morpheus rouses from his bed, Sloth unfolds her arms and wakes, Listening Envy drops her snakes ; Intestine war no more our Passions wage, And giddy Factions hear away their rage.
Page 180 - Sie ist der Ort, Oü dans un doux enchantement Le citoyen chagrin oublie Et la guerre et le Parlement Et les impots et la patrie, Et dans l'ivresse du moment Croit voir le bonheur de sä vie.5 Hat der Tonkünstler durch diese Zurücksetzung des poetischen Stoffs gewonnen oder verloren?
