Rehearsal Recordings


By Johann Steuerlein

I’m overcome with love
My sweetheart
My desire stands for you
It could or would be
Could I earn your favour
If I came with a greater need
I would rather die
And wish that upon myself.
How could I leave you
It would cost me my life
I know by any count
That I cannot leave you
I have given myself to you
Meanwhile I still have a life
Thankfully not departed from you
