Lyrics
Come away, come sweet love, the golden morning breaks
all the earth, all the air of love and pleasure speaks
teach thine arms then to embrace
and sweet rosy lips to kiss
and mix our souls in mutual bliss!

Sancta Maria - ora pro nobis
(Holy Mary - pray for us)
Sancta Magdalena - ora pro nobis
(Holy Magdalena - pray for us)
Sancta Margarita - ahh
(Holy Margarita - ahh)

Do you hear this cry?
The death bell now I hear ...
Are you afraid?
Let's return ...

Come away, come sweet love, the golden morning breaks
all the earth, all the air of love and pleasure speaks
teach thine arms then to embrace
and sweet rosy lips to kiss
and mix our souls in mutual bliss.

Eyes were made for for beauty's grace,
viewing rueing love's long pain,
procur'd by beauty's rude disdain

Come away, come, sweet love
the golden morning wastes,
while the sun from his sphere his fiery arrows casts,
making all the shadows fly, playing, staying in the grove
to entertain the stealth of love.
Thither, sweet love, let us hie,
flying dying in desire,
wing'd with sweet hopes and heavenly fire.

Come away, come sweet love, do not in vain adorn
beauty's grace that should rise like to the naked morn;
lilies on the river's side and fair Cyprian flowers new blown
desire no beauties but their own.

Here's my drink and I have my cigarette
It's fabulous stuff, does great things for your voice
takes you to places you've never ever expected
You'll like that ...

Really incredible who you succeeded in mixing these totally different parts into one masterpiece

Neat Synthesis of Old and New
Who says you can't integrate classical and current? You are a master of effectively synthesizing seemingly contraditory styles.

What a great track
For me, the neo-classical bits work best and the female vocal seems to be added almost as an afterthought (her voice seems to sit on top of the mix rather than integral to it) - but she does sound good.

Andreas, you have a fantastic voice.

How would you feel about collaborating with sonicmagpie at some point?

Very impressive
This is a very impressive piece of work. The voices are amazing, and the way you blend the music and vocals is superb. I love the different styles of music - not just the variety, but the fact that nothing seems out of place. Everything works very well together - and that takes real skill. Outstanding. Nicely done. Peace.

Lol
You are the king of the Renaissance Soul genre, Andres, wonderful to hear you and Elizabeth on this together.

I just
couldn't stop from listening to this wonderfully surreal sounding Operetta. I loved every dangerous sounding minute..... though I wasn't afraid, I could understand if someone was, after listening to that booming Boris Karloff type voice asking the question LOL. I really loved it all, regards M
