When I am laid in earth (Dido's Lament)
Dido's Lament - Malena Ernman
Singer: Malena Ernman
My favourite mezzo soprano singing 'Thy hand, Belinda' and 'When I am laid in earth' from Purcell's Dido & Aeneas.
Please note: I do not own the rights. This recording is not commercially available.
Watch videos with other singers performing When I am laid in earth:
Thy hand, Belinda; darkness shades me,
On thy bosom let me rest,
More I would, but Death invades me;
Death is now a welcome guest.
When I am laid in earth,
May my wrongs create
No trouble in thy breast;
Remember me, but ah! forget my fate.
