Season 2018-2019 • The Sixteenth Season Ruben Valenzuela, Artistic Director Michael Sponseller, Associate Director Fairest Isle (King Arthur) Henry Purcell Clara Rottsolk , Soprano Fairest isle, all isles excelling, Seat of pleasure and of love; Venus here will choose her dwelling, And forsake her Cyprian grove. Cupid from his fav'rite nation, Care and envy will remove; Jealousy that poisons passion, And despair that dies for love. Gentle murmurs, sweet complaining, Sighs that blow the fire of love; Soft repulses, Kind disdaining, Shall be all the pains you prove. Ev'ry swain shall pay his duty, Grateful ev'ry nymph shall prove; And as these excel in beauty, Those shall be renown'd for love. May 4, 2019 Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church (Cardiff)
