Romanticism stresses strong emotion as a source of aesthetic experience, placing emphasis on such emotions as trepidation, horror, and the awe experienced in confronting the sublimity of nature. It elevates folk art, nature and custom, as well as arguing for an epistemology based on nature,... This song is a musical version of George Gordon Byron's poem "She walks in beauty", featuring Monika Philippi singing the Soprano part - listen to it and enjoy!


Lyrics:


George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron. 17881824

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that 's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Arthur Quiller-Couch, ed. 1919. The Oxford Book of English Verse: 12501900
