Titel - The ash grove

Countertenor 1: Nigel Perrin Countertenor 2: Alastair Hume Tenor: Alastair Thompson Bariton 1: Anthony Holt Bariton 2: Simon Carrington Baß: Brian Kay


Near the ash grove sleeps my love.
'Neath the green turf sleeps my love.

Down yonder green valley where streamlets meander,
When twilight is fading, I pensively rove,
Or at the bright noontide in solitude wander
Amid the dark shades of the lonely Ash grove.

'Twas there, while the blackbird was cheerfully singing,
I first met that dear one, the joy of my heart;
And near us for gladness the bluebells were ringing,
Ah! then little thought I how soon we should part.

Oh, how soon did we part.

Still grows the bright sunshine o'er valley and mountain;
Still warbles the blackbird its note from the tree;
Still trembles the moonbeam on streamlet and fountain;
But what are the beauties of nature to me?

With sorrow, deep sorrow, my bosom is laden;
All day I go mourning in search of my love.
Ye echoes, O tell me, where is the sweet maiden?
"She sleeps 'neath the green turf down by the Ash grove."

Near the ash grove sleeps my love.
