Tune of the Day: O Isis und Osiris

from Mozart's “The Magic Flute”, arranged for two flutes

This aria is sung by Sarastro at the beginning of Act II of Mozart's famous opera The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte), after having explained to the council of priests of Isis and Osiris that he seized Pamina from her mother so that she could be united with Tamino. He plans for the couple to eventually take over from him as rulers of the temple, and praises the gods Isis and Osiris, asking them to protect Tamino and Pamina.

O Isis and Osiris, give
The spirit of wisdom to the new pair.
She who links to her the wanderer's steps,
Strengthens them with patience in danger.
