ANGELS GUARD THEE from "Jocelyn" 1888 opera Benjamin Godard (m) Victor Capoul (Fr l) Armand Silvestre (Fr l) S J Reilly (Eng l) as recorded by Richard Tauber with Orchestra conducted by Henry Geehl December 22nd 1943 also recorded by - John McCormack '14 Gracie Fields '50 Jussi Bjorling Pablo Casals (cello) Edmond Clement Richard Crooks Placido Domingo Kenneth McKellar Tito Rossi Awake not yet from thy repose, A fair dream spirit hovers near thee, Weaving a web of gold and rose, Through dreamland's happy isles to bear thee. Sleep, love, it is not yet the dawn, Angels guard thee, sweet love, till morn. Beneath the quivering leaves, where shelter comes at last, All sadness sinks to rest, or glides into the past. Her sweet eyes prismed now in their soft silken bowers, Oh my love, calm she sleeps beneath the trembling stars. Awake not yet from thy repose, A fair dream spirit hovers near thee, Weaving a web of gold and rose, Through dreamland's happy isles to bear thee. Sleep, love, it is not yet the dawn, Angels guard thee, sweet love, till morn. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2013)
