You spotted snakes
John Christopher Smith, Handel’s pupil and assistant, included some striking settings of well-known lyrics in his two Shakespearean operas The Fairies (1755), derived from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and The Tempest (1756). ‘You spotted snakes’ creates a magical atmosphere by the use of drones and hushed unison passages.
