EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
MUSIC HELP YOUR-pl ANXIETY, PROBLEM, TROUBLE DISSOLVE.
GO-AHEAD ENJOY FASCINATED. NOTHING WRONG.
MAYBE YOU-pl CURIOUS HOW YOUR PAIN CALM-DOWN.
DON'T RESIST ENJOY. GO-AHEAD REALLY-INTO. NOTHING WRONG.
SOMEDAY TROUBLE END, PROBLEM SOLVE, ANXIETY NO MORE.
GOD THEY PAH ALLOW DEAD FREE, SUFFER STOP.
FEMALE~GOD HER-lf SNAKE WIGGLE-IN-HAIR alt.DROP-FROM-HAIR.
WHIP GONE, PUNICH CAN'T.
Music for a while
Shall all your cares beguile:
Wond'ring how your pains were eas'd
And disdaining to be pleas'd
Till Alecto free the dead
From their eternal bands.
Till the snakes drop from her head,
And the whip from out her hands.
To hear the music (without words), go to Purcell - My MIDI files, scroll down to "Purcell - Oedipus Rex - Music for a while" and click on any of the three links directly below it.
