“Sweet bird” from the pastoral ode L’Allegro, il Penseroso, ed il Moderato, HWV 55 by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Dorothee Mields, soprano

Stefan Temmingh, recorder

La Folia Barockorchester & The Gentleman’s Band

 

Sweet bird, that shun’st the noise of folly,

Most musical, most melancholy!

Thee, chauntress, oft the woods among,

I woo to hear thy even-song.

Or, missing thee, I walk unseen,

On the dry smooth-shaven green,

To behold the wand’ring moon

Riding near her highest noon.
