Franz Schubert
Liebesbotschaft (2.6 Mb)
Translation of song:
Murmuring brook, so silver and bright, do you hasten, so lively and swift, to my beloved? Ah, sweet brook, be my messenger; bring her greetings from her distant lover.
All the flowers, tended in her garden, which she wears so charmingly on her breast, and her roses with their crimson glow: refresh them, brooklet, with your cooling waters.
When on your bank she inclines her head, lost in dreams, thinking of me, comfort my sweetheart with a kindly glance, for her beloved will soon return.
When the sun sinks in a red flush, lull my sweetheart to sleep. With your soft murmurings bring her sweet repose, and whisper dreams of love.
Accompanied by Jennifer Partridge
