Story

Samson plans his revenge.  Emily plays the Samson's vocal line on the violin, with continuo and occasional help from Mat's flute.

Lyrics

Thus when the sun from’s wat’ry bed,
All curtain’d with a cloudy red,
Pillows his chin upon an orient wave;
The wand’ring shadows ghastly pale,
All troop to their infernal jail,
Each fetter’d ghost slips to his sev’ral grave.
