General Information

Title: Der süße Schlaf
Composer: Leonhard Lechner

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SAATB
Genre: SecularMadrigal

Language: German
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1579 in Newe Teutsche Lieder, no. 11

Description: Lechner wrote on the title page that these Newe Teutsche Lieder had already been set to music by Jacob Regnart in three voices. Compared with Der süsze Schlaff (Jacob Regnart), however, the similarities are so small that this piece can not be described as an arrangement, but as a new composition.

German.png German text

Der süße Schlaf, der sonst alls stillet wohl,
kann stillen nicht mein Herz mit Trauern voll;
das schafft allein, die mich, die mich erfreuen soll.

Kein Speis noch Trank mir Lust noch Nahrung geit,
kein Kurzweil ist, die mir mein Herz erfreut,
das schafft allein, die mir im Herzen leit.

Kein Gsellschafft ich nit mehr besuchen mag,
Ganz einig sitz in Unmut Tag und Nacht,
das schafft allein, die ich im Herzen trag.

In Zuversicht allein gen ihr ich hang,
und hoff, sie soll mich nit verlassen lang,
sonst fiel ich gwiss ins bittern Todes Zwang.
