The Tyger

(Magic Universe)

- 2014 -

 

Nach gut 30 Jahren gibt es wieder mal was neues aus dem Projekt "Magic Universe".

Wie viele meiner damaligen Stücke so ist auch "The Tyger" aus einem Gedicht entstanden.
Heute habe ich ein wunderschönes Gedicht von William Blake (ca. 1790) entdeckt und spontan vertont.

Viel Spaß beim Zuhören.

The Tyger

words by William Blake (1790)
music by Harald 2014-08-06

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symm’try?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, and what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? and what dread feet?

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symm’try?

Solo

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symm’try?

What the hammer? What the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? What dread grasp,
Dare its deadly terrors clasp!

When the stars threw down their spears
And water'd heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see? ,
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symm’try?

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symm’try?
