from King Arthur: What Power art thou (The Cold Song)

by Andreas Scholl & Ensemble Artaserse 

What power art thou, who from below
Hast made me rise unwillingly and slow
From beds of everlasting snow?
See’st thou not how stiff and wondrous old
Far unfit to bear the bitter cold,
I can scarcely move or draw my breath?
Let me, let me freeze again to death.

Sé que me Muero de Amor. (I know I’m dying of love)

by Raquel Andueza (La Galanía)

Sé que me muero de amor
y solicito el dolor.

Aún muriendo de querer
De tan buen ayre adolezco,
Que es más de lo que padezco
Lo que quiero padecer.

Y no pudiendo exceder
A mi deseo el rigor.

Lisonxéame la suerte
Con piedad tan advertida,
Que me assegura la vida
En el riesgo de la muerte.

Vivir de su golpe fuerte
es de mi salud primor.

Canzonetta Spirituale sopra alla Nannaa: Hor ch’e Tempo di Dormire

by L’Arpegiatta

Mary sings a cradle song for her newborn son while breast-feeding him, but her song is at the same time a lament in which she abandons herself to harrowing visions of his future life and sufferings. The rocking motion as she cradles her child is represented by an unusual ground bass in triple time that uses only two notes; it seems to lull Mary into a trance-like state, and with her the listener. She gaces at the hands, feet and miraculous countenance of her newborn child and sees his hands and feet pierced by nails, his eyes covered by a cloth drenched in sweat and his face spat upon and beaten. The ninna-nanna refrain at the end of each stanza draws her back to the present and her beloved child(…)
