Music Passion – Night

Sarah Potter Writes

My music passion for April is “One Charming Night” (Secresy’s song) sung by Andreas Scholl (countertenor). This song is from Henry Purcell’s semi-opera, The Fairy Queen, based on William Shakespeare’s play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (1692).

As you can see, the lyrics of the song are most playful!

One charming night
Gives more delight
Than a hundred lucky days:
Night and I improve the taste,
Make the pleasure longer last
A thousand, thousand several ways.

A big thank you to, Phil at Random Thoughts for choosing the theme for April.
