You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Und wie vom Sturm zerstoben

Language: German (Deutsch) after the German (Deutsch)

Erzählerin (alto solo)
 Und wie vom Sturm zerstoben ist all' der Hörer Schwarm.
 Der Jüngling hat verröchelt in seines Meisters Arm;
 Der schlägt um ihn den Mantel und setzt ihn auf das Roß,
 Er bind't ihn aufrecht feste, verläßt mit ihm das Schloß.

 Doch vor dem hohen Tore, da hält der Sängergreis,
 Da faßt er seine Harfe, sie, aller Harfen Preis,
 An einer Marmorsäule, da hat er sie zerschellt;
 Dann ruft er, daß es schaurig durch Schloß und Gärten gellt:
