Abstract

[Schubert] Once on a time,
In a kingdom by the sea,
Lived a young prince sad and lonely,

[Mitzi] Under enchantment of magic mystery,

[Schubert] To be set free by one only.

[Mitzi] Weary he waited while years sped along,
Came then a maid pure and holy

[Schubert] Love broke the spell so the story books tell,

[Mitzi] And he laid at her feet this song:

[Schubert] You are my song of love, melody immortal, Echo of Paradise
Heard through Heaven’s portal

[Mitzi] Soft your music is singing, bringing
Secrets sweet in its song to me,

[Schubert] Your vision shines on me from above,

[Mitzi & Schubert] You are my song of songs,
All the glory of love.
