Meine Seele hört im Sehen, HWV207
author of text
1721/4; Irdiches Vergnügen in Gott, bestehend in Physicalisch- und Moralischen Gedichten

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Meine Seele hört im Sehen HWV207 features musical material Handel used in his Trio Sonata in B flat major Op 2 No 3 (HWV388) and also in a Sonata in F for two violins (HWV392). The lyrical opening melody, memorably reused for the aria ‘Date serta’ in the motet Silete venti, introduces a comparison of the visual flourishes of blossoming spring with the forces of nature joining to praise God.
