Book II

from Lent 2010 by Once in a Moon



Book two of the Aeneid tells the whole Trojan Horse story in flashback.

The music is from Movement 38 of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas (Dido's Lament or When I am Laid) and is taken from a recording of a performance at Bury Court, Bentley. You can hear a little of Dido's voice in the edit.


With fear, and hate, and fire, they steal through my Troy
Awoken by ghosts, with father and son I flee
My sweet wife's pale face urging me safe out to sea


from Lent 2010, track released February 28, 2010
Music written by Henry Purcell and Performed by Southbank Sinfonia. Lyrics and Vocals by Robert Wells.
