Contents The barber of Seville. La la la lera, la la la la. Here at your service to do or die am! / Rossini -- Il trovatore. All is deserted ; In the stars that shine above me ; My hour of joy approaches / Verdi (with: Clive Bayley, bass) -- Dom Sebastian, King of Portugal. Oh the African shores ; Lisbon fair, beloved homeland / Donizetti -- Lucia of Lammermoor. You seem unhappy ; Trembling, I feel the horror ; All in vain do you try to waken tender feelings / Donizetti (with: Stephen Chaundy, tenor ; Peter Rose, bass) -- Ernani. Since the day when first I saw you ; You're Ernani! At once I despise you / Verdi (with: Susan Patterson, soprano ; Julian Gavin, tenor) -- The two Foscari. I am alone, here in private ; How my old heart beats wildly / Verdi -- William Tell. Will you go? Why are you so anxious ; Keep very still now: kneel down before me / Rossini (with: Barry Banks, tenor) -- Attila. Peace is concluded ; From everlasting mountians ; So my fate has been decided / Verdi (with: Dennis O'Neill, tenor) -- Ernani. Charlemagne inspire me / Verdi (with: Peter Rose, bass) -- Pagliacci. Prologue / Leoncavallo.
