Antognini, Ivo: Surge, amica mea

Surge, amica mea (2019)

Surge, amica mea, speciosa mea, et veni: columba mea, in foraminibus petræ, in caverna maceriæ. Ostende mihi faciem tuam, sonet vox tua in auribus meis: vox enim tua dulcis, et facies tua decora.

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the cliffs. Let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.

Words: Song of Solomon 2 vv. 13–14
Music: Ivo Antognini (b. 1963)
