'Morgen' (Tomorrow), Opus 27, no. 4 by Richard Strauss (1864-1949), with words by John Henry Mackay. Performed by the Mezzo Soprano Marianne Lihannah and the Harpist Charlotte Poulter in Trellech Church, Wales.
This unique song is one of the 4 glorious songs that Strauss presented to his beloved Pauline (a distinguished singer) on their wedding day in 1894. The words are very romantic; here is a translation from the German of some of the words: “And tomorrow the sun will shine again. And on the path that I will be following she will (the sun) unite us again, - us happy ones. In silence we will gaze into one another’s eyes and the silent silence of happiness will descend on us.”
All the best Marianne Lihannah and Charlotte Poulter
