PROGRAM I. O del mio dolce ardor Gluck Thou, whom my soul doth cherish with fond devotion, Wildly my heart is beating with glad emotion; For ah! once more I'm near thee! Where e'er I roamed, thine image did fondly greet me. And love with hope did fill me, And ne'er did cease to tell me. That again I'd meet thee. Now, O delight! at last once more I'm neat thee. Seeking thee, calling, sighing: "Love, O hear me!" Ah! Thou, whom my soul doth cherish with fond devotion, Wildly my heart is beating in glad emotion. For ah! once more I'm near thee! Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring Bach Silent Worship Handel Love Sounds the Alarm, from "Acis and Galatea Handel Mr. Crooks II. Ich ruf zu dir Bach Concerto on Themes of Cimarosa Arthur Benjamin Mr. Primrose III. Du bist die Ruh Schubert My peace thou art, thou art my rest; And be this breast thine endless home; From thee my pain, in thee so blest: Shut out all woe, all lesser care and woe. Enter mine eyes, this heart draw near, I would thy hurt and healing know. o come, o dwell forever here. Clear light that on my soul hath shone. Enter, and close the door, and come. Still let it shine from thee alone. Halt Schubert Yon I see a mill-wheel flashing Through the alders around, Thro' rippling and splashing Sweet singing doth sound. O how welcome, merry song of the mill! And the house looks so cheerful, And the window so bright, And the sun, how from Heaven He pours his clear light! Ah, brooklet, darling brooklet, did I really guess right? Mein — Schubert Brooklet, stay thy babbling fine, Noisy wheel, thy toil resign, Ye gay warblers, sing not a line, at my sign Great and small your joy confine! Tree and vine, Leafy shrine, In one sounding rime combine: The beloved miller-maid is mine! Spring-tide, are these all the flow'rs Thou callest thine? Sun-beams! can ye not more brightly shine? Must I all alone repine, Lonely in my bliss divine, Is no joy in all the world to vie with mine? (Program continued on back) Coming... San Carlo Opera Company, Wednesday to Sunday, Feb. 7 to 11, Inc.

(Concluded) Eifersucht und Stolz Schubert o why so fume, and fret, and foam, my brooklet dear? Dost rush and roar to catch the saucy huntsman here? Go back, go back, and first of all thy miller-maid, For all her naughty, wilful, woeful wiles upbraid, Go back, go back, go back. Didst thou not see last night how at the door she stood, And how her glances wandered up and down the road? When from the chase the jovial huntsman homeward goes, No prudent girl her face e'er at the window shows. Go, brooklet, go, and tell her so. Yet not a word, hear'st thou? not one, Say of my face so woe-bcgone. But say: He fashions whistles from the taper reed, And gaily pipes to children dancing on the mead. Mr. Crooks Intermission IV. Aria—-Lamento di Federico, from "L'Arlesiana Cilea The poor shepherd boy was going to tell the story When he fell asleep. In sleep there is forgetfulness. How i envy him! i also should like to sleep like that. In sleep at least to find forgetfulness! Peace alone i want to seek, i should like to be able to forget everything. But every effort is in vain. I have always before me Her sweet face. Only I am without peace! Why must i suffer so much? She, always she, speaks to my heart. Fatal vision, leave me! You are harming me so much! Alas!
