Titel - Beauty is but a painted hell

Countertenor 1: Jeremy Jackman Countertenor 2: Alastair Hume Tenor: Bob Chilcott Bariton 1: Anthony Holt Bariton 2: Simon Carrington Baß: Colin Mason


Beauty is but a painted hell;
    Aye me, Aye me,
Shee wounds them that admire it,
Shee kils them that desire it.
Give her pride but fuell,
No fire is more cruell.

Pittie from ev'ry heart is fled:
    Aye me, aye me,
Since false desire could borrow
Teares of dissembled sorrow,
Constant vows turn truthlesse,
Love cruele, Beauty ruthlesse.

Sorrow can laugh, and Fury sing:
    Aye me, aye me,
My raving griefes discover
I liv'd too true a lover:
The first step to madnesse
Is the excesse of sadnesse.

Produzent: Daryl Runswick
