Am Bach viel kleine Blumen stehn  
Am Feierabend  
At the round earth's imagined corners, blew

Be slowly lifted up, thou long black arm  
Begrabt den Leib in seiner Gruft

I was angry with my friend  
Ich bin gekommen ins Niederland  
Ich denke dein  
Ich denke dein, wenn mir der Sonne Schimmer  
Ich frage keine Blume  
Ich hab' mein Weib allein  
Ich hört’ ein Bächlein rauschen  
Ich möchte ziehn in die Welt hinaus  
Ich schau' über Forth hinüber nach Nord  
Ich schnitt’ es gern in alle Rinden ein  
Ich sende einen Gruss wie Duft der Rosen  
If thou wilt ease thine heart 'Dirge for Wolfram' (Britten)
Ihr Blümlein alle  
Il me faut retourner aux anciennes amours  
Im Westen  
In Grün will ich mich kleiden  
Incassum Lesbia, incassum rogas  
It seemed that out of battle I escaped  
Just as the tide was flowing  
La jeunesse nous quitte, et les Grâces aussi  
Lass mich ihm am Busen hangen  
Lasst mich nur auf meinem Sattel gelten!  
Le souci, plus léger que les vents de l'Épire  
Leis' rudern hier, mein Gondolier! Die Flut vom Ruder sprühn  
Let us sleep now …

Move him into the sun

Ô blanche Tyndaris, les Dieux me sont amis  
O might those sighes and teares returne againe into my breast and eyes  
Offre un encens modeste aux Lares familiers  
Oh my blacke Soule! now thou art summoned  
Oh, to vex me, contraryes meet in one  
One ever hangs where shelled roads part  
Oroonoko, Z584 (Purcell/Britten)

See how the sun  
Seh' ich in das stille Tal  
Sei sanft, wie ihre Seele

Was will die einsame Träne?  
Wassail song  
Weit, weit  
Wenn durch die Piazzetta  
Wer bist du, Geist der Liebe  
Wer ist vor meiner Kammertür?  
Wer Lebenslust fühlet, der bleibt nicht allein

Wohin so schnell, so kraus und wild, mein lieber Bach?
