Henry Purcell
Fairy Queen: Hark! The echoing air
Love, thou can’st hear, though thou art blind
Fairy Queen: Ye gentle spirits of the air
Prophetess: Let us dance, let us sing
Sylvia, now your scorn give over
Tyrannic Love: Ah, how sweet it is to love
I love and I must
Oedipus: Music for a while
Fly swift, ye hours
Fairy Queen: Turn then thine eyes
Pausanias: Sweeter than roses
O how happy's he
Lovely Albina’s come ashore
Now that the sun hath veiled its light, "Evening Hymn on a Ground"
