Botschaft.....................................Brahms
Fan ye breezes, fair and softly
Fan the cheek of my sweet lady
Gently sport ye with her tresses
Hasten not to speed away,
Hasten not to speed away.

Standchen...................................Schubert
Softly through the night is calling
Love, my song to thee
Shades of night are swiftly falling
Dearest, come to me.
In the moonlight gently swinging,
Whispering leaves I hear;
No one listens, they are saying
"Fair one, do not fear."

Der Tod und das Madchen....................Schubert
The Maiden:  Pass onward, O pass onward
             Wild man with barren bone!
             I'm but a forlorn maiden
             Go, leave thy young alone!
Death:       Give me thy hand, O fair young child
             As friend I come and not to chasten.
             Be of good cheer, I am not wild
             Come then, and to these fond arms hasten!
Der Erlkonig...............................Schubert
Who rides there so late through the night so wild?
A loving father with his young child
Has clasped his boy close with his fond arm,

And closer-closer, to keep him warm.
"Dear Son, what makes thy sweet face grow so white?"
"See Father, 'tis the Erl King in sight!
The Erl King stand there with crown and shroud!"
"Dear Son, it is some misty cloud."
"Thou dearest boy, wilt come with me?
And many games I'll play with thee
Where varied blossoms grown on the wold,
And my Mother hath many a robe of gold."
"Dear Father, my Father, say dids't thou not hear
The Erl King whisper so low in my ear?"
"Be tranquil, then my child:
Among withered leaves the wild bloweth wild."
"Wilt come, proud boy, wilt though come with me?
There my beauteous daughter doth wait for thee?
With my daughter you'll join in dances every night
She'll lull thee with sweet songs to give thee delight."
"Dear father, my father, cans't thou not trace
The Erl King's daughter in yon dark place?"
"Dear son, dear son, the form you there see
Is only the hollow grey willow tree."
"I love thee well, with me thou shalt ride on my course,
And if thou'rt unwilling I seize thee by force!"
"O father, my father, thy child closer clasp,
Erl King hath seized me with icy grasp!"
His father shuddered, his face grew more wild,
He held to his bosom his poor swooning child.
He reached that house with toil and dread,
But in his arms, lo! his child lay dead.

Aria: O Don Fatale, from "Don Carlos".........Verdi
The jealousy of the Princess Eboli has brought about disastrous results, and Don Carlos is sentenced to die. In this aria she bewails her own beauty and vanity which have made her betray the Queen and Carlos. She determines to hide in a lone cloister, then realizing that one day is left in which she might save Carlos, she determines to try, even thought she must make great sacrifices.

O fatal gift! O cruel gift!
That in its fury, a Heaven brings to me!
No matter what may come to pass,
I curse my fatal beauty!
All hope is lost, I can but shed my tears.
My crime is past redemption.
Ah! How I curse my beauty!
