VOCES8: Draw on, Sweet Night by John Wilbye

"VOCES8 sings John Wilbye's madrigal 'Draw on, Sweet Night' in the Nicholaikirche in Plön, Germany. The performance was filmed as part of VOCES8's 'Live From London: On Tour' concert.

TEXT Draw on, Sweet Night, best friend unto those cares That do arise from painful melancholy. My life so ill through want of comfort fares, that unto thee I consecrate it wholly. Sweet Night, draw on! My griefs when they be told To shades and darkness find some ease from paining, And while thou all in silence dost enfold, I then shall have best time for my complaining." from video introduction
