Please forgive me for I must post this. It is a more modern sensibility for the "Urlicht." It is the divine and immortal Lorraine Hunt Lieberson with MTT and the San Francisco Symphony. There are performances one wishes one had attended.
"O red rose! Here we are in greatest need! Here we are in greatest pain! O were I better in heaven! There I came upon a broad, fair path, then there came a little angel who would turn me away. Ah, no, I would not be turned away. I am of God, and will return to God, for our loving God will give me light for seeing, which will light me into that eternal, blissful life!"
No offense to Maureen.
