Henry Purcell - Wayward sisters, you that fright

английски
A A

Wayward sisters, you that fright

SORCERESS
Wayward sisters, you that fright
The lonely traveller by night.
Who, like dismal ravens crying,
Beat the windows of the dying,
Appear! Appear at my call, and share in the fame
Of a mischief shall make all Carthage flame.
Appear!
 
Благодаря!

hm, the full lyrics of the aria (I put the roles also, otherwise the text looses it's sense):

SORCERESS
Wayward sisters, you that fright
The lonely traveller by night.
Who, like dismal ravens crying,
Beat the windows of the dying,
Appear! Appear at my call, and share in the fame
Of a mischief shall make all Carthage flame.
Appear!

FIRST WITCH
Say, Beldame, say what's thy will.

CHORUS
Harm's our delight and mischief all our skill.

SORCERESS
The Queen of Carthage, whom we hate,
As we do all in prosp'rous state,
Ere sunset, shall most wretched prove,
Depriv'd of fame, of life and love!

CHORUS
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

TWO WITCHES
Ruin'd ere the set of sun?
Tell us, how shall this be done?

SORCERESS
The Trojan Prince, you know, is bound
By Fate to seek Italian ground;
The Queen and he are now in chase.

FIRST WITCH
Hark! Hark! the cry comes on apace.

SORCERESS
But, when they've done, my trusty Elf
In form of Mercury himself
As sent from Jove, shall chide his stay,
And charge him sail tonight with all his fleet away.

CHORUS
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

TWO WITCHES
But ere we this perform,
We'll conjure for a storm
To mar their hunting sport,
And drive 'em back to court.

CHORUS
in the manner of an echo
In our deep vaulted cell the charm we'll prepare,
Too dreadful a practice for this open air.
