6. Companions from "6 Italian Love Duets" by Handel: My mother, Janet Wheeler, passed over on Christmas, 2015. Here she sings with soprano, Eileen Laurence & Dorothy Walters, harpsichord. My mother is second to sing at a half a minute (the upper voice). I am posted these in tribute to her, from Amphion Recording CL2113. Remastered by Mike Burke.
Translation: 6. Ah, in all human destiny, what would be happier Than a heart without anguish! But vain hope obscures the true knowledge That pain and pleasure go as companions.
