Programme Note
Michael Nyman Ariel Songs (from Prospero's Books) Version 1 (1992)

Come and Go

Before you can say, ‘Come,’ and ‘Go,’
And breathe twice, and cry, ‘So, so.’
Each one, tripping on his tow
Will be here with mop and mow.

Full Fathom Five

Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:
Hark! now I hear them, - Ding-dong bell
