WHO IS SYLVIA? William Shakespeare (l) 1594 F. Schubert (m) 1826 as rec by Maxine Sullivan w Orch dir by John Kirby Who is Sylvia? What is she That all her swains commend her? Lovely, fair and wise is she, The heaven such grace should render That ador-ed she might be, That ador-ed she might be. Is she kind as she is fair, For beauty lives with kindness? To her eyes love does repair To help him of his blindness; And being held in habit there, And being held in habit there. To lovely Sylvia let us garlands bring, For lovely Sylvia excels each mortal thing; For lovely Sylvia excels all things! (Contributed by Peter Akers - June 2010)
