Violoncello from Non lo dirÃ² col labbro - Silent Worship HWV25 for String Trio
The song Silent Worship is a 1928 adaptation for voice and piano by Arthur Somervell of the aria Non lo dirò col labbro in Handel's opera Tolomeo (Ptolemy), from 1728, just 200 years earlier, which has remained a popular classic in song-recitals and home music-making. For many, its use in the 1996 film of Jane Austen's Emma effectively captures an atmosphere of 19th century home entertainment, although historically this English drawing-room version was created more than a century after the action of the novel. Other arrangements include solo song accompanied by a modern symphony orchestra, and male-voice choir.
Musically the song is a simple transcription of the original with the orchestral parts reduced for piano, one or two slight changes in harmony, and the instrumental ending (postlude) omitted. In the 1996 film version, the introduction is also shortened. ~ Wikipedia
