It's a quiet, very intimate setting. It's magic of the night. Smell the affection between alto voice and male choir when they repeat leise, leise. In that moment, music is not around you, it's inside you, spreading through your body. Sip hot tea–that's the feeling.
Schlaf du nicht, schlaf du nicht–do not sleep. Not now.
Composer: Franz Schubert Work: Ständchen, D. 920 Recording: Monteverdi Choir, John Eliot Gardiner
