Story

Kerry Ryer-Parke sings Dalila's plea asking for Samson's forgiveness.  Mat provides the obbligato line (originally scored for violin).

Lyrics

With plaintive notes and am’rous moan, 
Thus coos the turtle left alone.
Like me, averse to each delight,
She wears the tedious widow’d night. 
But when her absent mate returns
With doubled raptures then she burns.
