D'hyacinthe et d'or

Gérard Souzay singing Duparc's L'Invitation au Voyage:

Thanks for rmcr for this link.
I remember - still - hearing Souzay leading a master class in this song on Radio 3 back inthe 70's - or maybe even the 60's - it was my first encounter with this work and the spell still entrances.
Mon enfant, ma soeur,
Songe à la douceur
D'aller là-bas vivre ensemble!
Aimer à loisir,
Aimer et mourir
Au pays qui te ressemble!

As Souzay said, always `his sister'!
(hmm where's the youtube video gone!?, try here if it remains invisible)
