My name is Anastasia Lee, I am 14 years old & I sing Classical Crossover, Opera, Musicals & the Classics.

This is my rendition of this wonderful Show tune from Camelot. In the style of Julie Andrews & Robert Goulet.

History of:
As a major role in the 1960 Broadway play, Sir Lancelot du Lac performs the highly dramatic composition "If Ever I Would Leave You" contrasting the 4 seasons and concluding that he could never leave Guenevere.

In the part of Lancelot 1960/1961, Robert Goulet received favorable reviews, most notably for his rendition of the show-stopping romantic ballad "If Ever I Would Leave You" (that became his signature song).[1] After Camelot's run, Goulet appeared on The Danny Thomas Show and The Ed Sullivan Show, which made him a household name among American audiences.

Aretha Franklin recorded the song for her album "Laughing on the Outside" (1962).

If ever I would leave you
It wouldn't be in summer.
Seeing you in summer I never would go.
Your hair streaked with sun-light,
Your lips red as flame,
Your face witha lustre
that puts gold to shame!

But if I'd ever leave you,
It couldn't be in autumn.
How I'd leave in autumn I never will know.
I've seen how you sparkle
When fall nips the air.
I know you in autumn
And I must be there.

And could I leave you
running merrily through the snow?
Or on a wintry evening
when you catch the fire's glow?

If ever I would leave you,
How could it be in spring-time?
Knowing how in spring I'm bewitched by you so?
Oh, no! not in spring-time!
Summer, winter or fall!
No, never could I leave you at all!
