No. 12: Chorus of Maidens

"Turn, oh turn in this direction"

Midi Symbol MIDI File [7 KB, 1' 14"]

Enter Grosvenor, followed by Maidens, two and two, playing on archaic instruments as in Act I. He is reading abstractedly, as Bunthorne did in Act I, and pays no attention to them

Maidens.

Turn, oh, turn in this direction,
Shed, oh, shed a gentle smile,
With a glance of sad perfection,
Our poor fainting hearts beguile!

On such eyes as maidens cherish
Let thy fond adorers gaze,
Or incontinently perish,
In their all-consuming rays!
Or incontinently perish,
In their all-consuming rays!
