Never weather-beaten saile

Thomas Campian (o Campion; 12 febbraio 1567 - 1620): Never weather-beaten saile, ayre (pubblicato nel First Book of Ayres, 1613, n. 11). Ensemble Phoenix Munich e Stile Antico.

Never weather-beaten saile more willing bent to shore.
Never tired pilgrim’s limbs affected slumber more,
Than my wearied sprite now longs to fly out of my troubled breast:
O come quickly, sweetest Lord, and take my soul to rest.

Ever blooming are the joys of Heaven’s high Paradise.
Cold age deafs not there our ears nor vapour dims our eyes:
Glory there the sun outshines whose beams the blessed only see:
O come quickly, glorious Lord, and raise my sprite to thee.

Campian - Never weather-beaten saile
