Ang Tangi Kong Pag-ibig

Hindi rin! Hindi po ito tungkol sa aking buhay pag-ibig (dahil wala naman ako nun). Bagkus, ito po ay patungkol sa isang bidyong aking nahagilap sa Youtube. Ayon sa impormasyon na aking nakalap, awiting ito ay mula sa "underground hit" album na Barangay Jologs the CD. Hango sa kundiman na "Ang Tangi Kong Pag-ibig", isang kumposisyon ni Constancio de Guzman.


Ang sakit sa tiyan!

Dedication

The most beautiful rendition of "Widmung". As sung my THE Diana Damrau (Soprano).  
nakakainlove talaga ang kantang 'to. ^_^

Widmung, by Robert Schumann


German:
Du meine Seele, du mein Herz,
Du meine Wonn’, O du mein Schmerz,
Du meine Welt, in der ich lebe,
Mein Himmel du, darein ich schwebe,
O du mein Grab, in das hinab
Ich ewig meinen Kummer gab.

Du bist die Ruh, du bist der Frieden,
Du bist vom Himmel mir beschieden.
Daß du mich liebst, macht mich mir wert,
Dein Blick hat mich vor mir verklärt,
Du hebst mich liebend über mich,
Mein guter Geist, mein beßres Ich!


English:
Thou art my soul, thou art my heart,
Nought can like thee such joy impart,
Thou art my world, my all of love,
My heaven art thou all else above,
And in thy breast have I reposed,
Each grief as in an urn enclosed.
 
Thou art my rest to me that's given,
After life's storms a peaceful haven,
Blest in thy love is life more dear
Thy glance doth make even heaven more near,
Thou hast up raised me with thy worth,
My guardian angel here on earth.

Thou art my soul, thou art my heart,
Nought can like thee such joy impart,
Thou art my world, my all of love,
My heaven art thou all else above,
My guardian angel here on earth.

Literal English translation:
You are my soul, you are my heart,
You are my bliss, o you are my pain,
You are the world in which I live;
You are my heaven, in which I float,
O you are my grave, into which
I eternally cast my grief.

You are the rest, you are the peace,
You are the heaven upon me bestowed.
That you love me makes me worthy of you;
your gaze transfigures me;
you raise me lovingly above myself,
my good spirit, my better self.



Also, I wouldn't know if that was really on purpose, but I really love how Schumann brings that Schubert's Ave Maria melody at the end. So lovely!
