La dolce primavera

Ēriks Ešenvalds (1977): Spring, the sweet spring per coro femminile e armonica a bicchieri (2012) su testo di Thomas Nashe (c1567 - 1601). Elektra Women’s Choir, dir. Morna Edmundson.

Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
 Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

The palm and may make country houses gay,
Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day,
And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay:
 Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,
Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit,
In every street these tunes our ears do greet:
 Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to witta-woo!

La pace sconfiggerà la guerra
