Death is a song from Klaus Nomi's second album, Simple Man which is a remake of the aria Dido's Lament from the Opera Dido and Æneas by Henry Purcell.

Just an incredible version. This really shows off Klaus's amazing countertenor voice.

lyrics:

Recitative

Thy hand, Belinda, darkness shades me,
On thy bosom let me rest,
More I would, but Death invades me;
Death is now a welcome guest.

Aria

When I am laid, am laid in earth,
May my wrongs create
No trouble, no trouble in thy breast;
Remember me, remember me, but ah! forget my fate.
Remember me, but ah!
forget my fate.

The first portrait used in this montage was taken by George DuBose.
