Happy birthday, Giuseppe

October 10, 2017

Giuseppe Verdi was born near Busseto in northern Italy on the ninth or tenth of October in 1813, and he grew up to be the best-loved opera composer in a country famous for its insatiable appetite for opera. Many of his operas continue to be staples of the repertoire more than a century after his death, and many of the melodies he composed are among the most familiar in the Western world.

Here is the “Anvil Chorus” from Il Trovatore, performed for an unsuspecting lunch hour crowd at a shopping mall in Tel Aviv by members of the Israel Philharmonic.

Our bondage it shall end, by and by, by and by, 
Our bondage it shall end, by and by; 
From Egypt’s yoke set free; 
Hail the glorious jubilee, 
And to Canaan we’ll return, by and by, by and by, 
And to Canaan we’ll return, by and by.

Our deliverer He shall come, by and by, by and by, 
Our deliverer He shall come, by and by; 
And our sorrows have an end, 
With our threescore years and ten, 
And vast glory crown the day, by and by, by and by, 
And vast glory crown the day, by and by.

And when to Jordan’s floods, we are come, we are come, 
And when to Jordan’s floods, we are come; 
Jehovah rules the tide, 
And the waters he’ll divide, 
And the ransomed host shall shout, we are come, we are come, 
And the ransomed host shall shout, we are come.

Then with all the happy throng, we’ll rejoice, we’ll rejoice, 
Then with all the happy throng, we’ll rejoice; 
Shouting glory to our King, 
Till the vaults of heaven ring, 
And through all eternity we’ll rejoice, we’ll rejoice, 
And through all eternity we’ll rejoice.

Rise, oh fathers, rise, 
Let’s go meet them in the skies, 
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.
Oh I really do believe that 
Just before the end of time, 
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.

Rise, oh mothers, rise, 
Let’s go meet them in the skies, 
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.
Oh I really do believe that 
Just before the end of time, 
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.

No time to tarry here, 
No time to wait for you, 
No time to tarry here, 
For I’m on my journey home.

Brothers, oh, fare ye well, 
For I’m on my journey home.
Sisters, oh, fare ye well, 
For I’m on my journey home.

No time to tarry here, 
No time to wait for you, 
No time to tarry here, 
For I’m on my journey home.

Oh I really do believe that 
Just before the end of time, 
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.
