Hayley Westenra Dido's Lament Lyrics

Last updated: 11/11/2013 07:11:53 AM

When I am laid, am laid in earth, may my wrongs create
No trouble, no trouble in, in thy breast.
When I am laid, am laid in earth, may my wrongs create
No trouble, no trouble in, in thy breast.
Remember me, remember me, but ah!
Forget my fate.
Remember me, but ah!
Forget my fate.
Remember me, remember me, but ah!
Forget my fate.
Remember me, but ah!
Forget my fate.

Not Hayley Westenra | Reviewer: David Angels | 11/10/13

Westenra may have performed this piece (properly known as "When I am laid in earth") but she certainly didn't write either the music or libretto. Credit for that goes to Henry Purcell and Nahum Tate... I wonder if Westenra would be amused to be considered to be of such an age as to have been able to compose something in 1689...
