    Hector Berlioz - Spectre de la Rose

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uouEe6dgde8

    Another one of my favorites. Magnificent. Special for our grandfather in music: Ted.

    The lyrics in French: copied from another Youtube entry.

    Soulève ta paupière close
    Qu’effleure un songe virginal ;
    Je suis le spectre d’une rose
    Que tu portais hier au bal.
    Tu me pris encore emperlée
    Des pleurs d’argent de l’arrosoir,
    Et parmi la fête étoilée
    Tu me promenas tout le soir.
    Ô toi qui de ma mort fus cause,
    Sans que tu puisses le chasser
    Toute la nuit mon spectre rose
    A ton chevet viendra danser.
    Mais ne crains rien, je ne réclame Ni messe, ni De Profundis ;
    Ce léger parfum est mon âme
    Et j’arrive du paradis
    Mon destin fut digne d’envie :
    Pour avoir un trépas si beau,
    Plus d’un aurait donné sa vie,
    Car j’ai ta gorge pour tombeau,
    Et sur l’albâtre où je repose
    Un poète avec un baiser
    Ecrivit :
    Ci-gît une rose
    Que tous les rois vont jalouser

    This is again a fantastic song in a very delicate recording. Very "sostenuto", a brilliant performance of the orchestra and singer.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Why do you do this to me Raymond. Calling me a grandfather in music? These days I am crying so easy, not because I feel sorry for myself but because I am sorry to leave music soon.
    Thanks. Thanks again my friend.
