Handel - Love in her eyes sits playing from 'Acis and Galatea'
Anthony Rolfe Johnson as Acis, tenor
with English Baroque Soloists
conducted by John Eliot Gardiner
John Gay (1685-1732)
Love in her eyes sits playing,
And sheds delicious death;
Love on her lips is straying,
And warbling in her breath!
Love on her breast sits panting
And swells with soft desire;
No grace, no charm is wanting,
To set the heart on fire.
