Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, A Starry Night op.17 (high voice and piano) (January 1897)


A cloud fell down from the heavens,
And broke on the mountain's brow;
It scattered the dusky fragments
All over the vale below.

The moon and the stars were anxious
To know what its fate might be;
So they rushed to the azure op'ning,
And all peered down to see.
