The Most Amazing Piece of Music Ever

What power art thou
Henry Purcell 1689/1691:
King Arthur, The British Worthy
3rd act

What power art thou, who from below
Hast made me rise unwillingly and slow
From beds of everlasting snow?
See'st thou not how stiff and wondrous old,
Far unfit to bear the bitter cold,
I can scarcely move or draw my breath?
Let me, let me freeze again to death...

Sung by Claus Nomi
