When I am laid in earth (Dido's Lament)
DIDO'S LAMENT WHEN I AM LAID IN EARTH PURCELL FLEMING KARAMAZOV
Singer: Renée Fleming
This most beautiful song is done so well by Renee Fleming and Edin Karamazov. I have heard many recording of this, but I am especially completely moved by this. Haunting
Watch videos with other singers performing When I am laid in earth:
Thy hand, Belinda; darkness shades me,
On thy bosom let me rest,

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.
