Arrangement of Sapphic Ode - number 4 of Five Songs, Op.94 - by Johannes Brahms. This also includes my own singing translation in English.The sound sample is an electronic preview.The original words of the song (followed by my singing translation) are:Rosen brach ich nachts mir am dunklen Hage. Süsser hauchten Duft sie als je am Tage. Doch verstreuten reich die bewegten Äste: Thau, der mich nässte. Auch der Küsse Duft mich wie nie berückte, die ich nachts vom Strauch deiner Lippen pflückte Doch auch dir bewegt im Gemüthgleich jenen, thauten die Thränen. Roses plucked at night from the darkening hedgerowSweeter scented than ever in the day-glowBut its branches showered me with its dewfallmoist and youthful and the scent of kisses lent me sweeter sips when I took them deep in the night from your soft lips And they made you just like the roses so tearful moved like the dewfall Translation (c) David Warin Solomons.
