Anderson J - My beloved spake



(from the Choirbook for The Queen)
Recorded on
29 April 2012


My beloved spake, and said unto me,
Rise, rise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;

The flowers appear upon the earth;
And the time of the singing of birds is come.
Rise, Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
This is my beloved and this is my friend.

Words: Song of Solomon 2 vv. 10–13, 16
