Love in her eyes sits playing (Handel) Anthony Rolfe Johnson

Singer: Anthony Rolfe Johnson

Love in her eyes sits playing from Acis and Galatea, HWV 49a
by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Anthony Rolfe Johnson, Acis
English Baroque Soloists
John Eliot Gardiner, conductor

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.
