Wainwright, Rufus - A Woman's Face - Reprise (Sonnet 20) Lyrics




A woman's face with nature's own hand painted
Hast thou, the master mistress of my passion
A woman's gentle heart but not acquainted
With shifting change as is false women's fashion

An eye more bright than theirs less false in rolling
Gilding the object whereupon it gazeth
A man in hue all hues in his controlling
Which steals men's eyes and women's souls amazeth

And for a woman wert thou first created
Till Nature as she wrought thee fell a-doting
And by addition me of thee defeated
By adding one thing to my purpose nothing

But since she prick'd thee out for women's pleasure
Mine be thy love and thy love's use their treasure

    An eye more bright than theirs less false in rolling
    Gilding the object whereupon it gazeth
    A man in hue all hues in his controlling
    Which steals men's eyes and women's souls amazeth

    And for a woman wert thou first created
    Till Nature as she wrought thee fell a-doting
    And by addition me of thee defeated
    By adding one thing to my purpose nothing

    I'll be honest, I can't gain anything from that production. Let it be Rufus alone who sings this track a-cappella, but not accompanied by this soulless beat that diminishes the beauty of the melody.

  13. Alexis Gump

    so touching and wonderful sounds

    Es todo crappo.

    Rufus Wainwright hace un viaje al pasado, a su infancia cuando su madre le leía sonetos de Shakespeare. Es una inmersión íntima en aquellos recuerdos. En su nuevo disco, "Take all my loves", el cantautor neoyorquino pone música a nueve sonetos del poeta y dramaturgo inglés. Hay arreglos orquestales, ópera, rock, pop, cabaret y hasta electrónica. Shakespeare viaja por todo ese mundo sonoro de Rufus, en opinión del músico las palabras del poeta tiene la capacidad de trascender cualquier tiempo, hasta el punto de que admite interpretaciones modernas. En el disco colaboran desde su hermana Martha Wainwright a Florence Welsh o la soprano Anna Prohaska
    Rufus Wainwright ha evolucionado en los últimos años desde el pop barroco a la ópera, aunque no pretende asentarse en el mundo clásico, ni en ese 'establishment'. En julio vendrá a actuar al Teatro Real de Madrid. Otros dos recintos de ópera en Europa del este quieren programar su primera ópera "Prima Donna" y confiesa que está trabajando en otra ópera llamada "Hadrian", pero ha prometido que volverá a hacer discos pop de nuevo.
    Música independiente novedades.
