Tune of the Day: Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix

from “Samson and Delilah”, transcribed for solo flute

This popular mezzo-soprano aria from Camille Saint-Saëns's 1887 opera Samson et Dalila is known in English as “Softly awakes my heart”, or more literally “My heart opens itself to your voice”. It is sung by Delilah in Act II as she attempts to seduce Samson into revealing the secret of his strength.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this piece!
