Bryn Terfel: Homeward Bound - an album guide
17. Lascia Ch'io Pianga
Longing for liberty, and a passionate release - Handel's Lascia ch'io pianga from his opera Rinaldo continues the themes heard throughout Bryn's album, whether in the form of Fauré's Requiem or an American folk song. Stylistically, it's a world away from bombastic classics like When the Saints Go Marchin' In, but adds a touch of delicacy to an otherwise high-octane track listing.
