THESE are two serenades sung by Count Alma-viva to Rosina. the jealously-guarded ward of Doctor Bartolo. The first air comes very soon after the opening of the Opera, at dawn outside Rosina's house. The other serenade is the Count's response to Rosina's request that she may know the name of her lover.
IN Handel's Cantata the Shepherd Acis, in spite of the appeals of his friends to stay and join in their pleasures, hastens to his fair one, Galatea, and thus pours out his love for her : —
Love in her eyes sits playing, . And sheds delicious death !
Love in her lips is straying.
And warbling in her breath !
Love on her breast sits panting,
And swells with soft desire :
No grace, no charm, is wanting,
To set the heart on fire.
I AGO, pursuing his aim of making Othello doubt the faithfulness of Desdemona. tells of Cassio's talking in his dreams other, and of his having her handkerchief in his possession. Othello's frenzy rises, and he kneels and calls on ' yonder marble heaven ' to witness his oath of vengeance. Iago' joins his oath to Othello's.
