Henry Purcell's masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas, is considered the high point of English opera. "When I Am Laid in Earth" is a poignant, lovely aria sung by the lovelorn, dying Queen Dido as her hero Aeneas sails away. Beautifully arranged by Sylvia Rabinof for two pianos, eight hands, the delicate simplicity sings forth with subtle strength. Two copies included. Late intermediate.
