Süßer Blumen Ambraflocken, HWV204

author of text
1721/4; Irdiches Vergnügen in Gott, bestehend in Physicalisch- und Moralischen Gedichten

Süßer Blumen Ambraflocken HWV204 is a sensual evocation of the scent of Amber flowers, in which the middle section describing the soul soaring heavenwards bears a resemblance to Cleopatra’s ‘Piangerò’ (Giulio Cesare).

Süßer Blumen Ambraflocken HWV204 est une sensuelle évocation de la senteur des fleurs ambrées, où la section médiane, qui décrit l’âme s’élevant vers les cieux, ressemble au «Piangerò» de Cléopâtre (Giulio Cesare).
