Barbara Hendricks sings Bachelet's "Chère nuit".
"Soon the hour will be here.
Behind the hills
I see the sun that goes down
and jealously hides her rays.
I hear the souls of things singing,
and the narcissus and the rose
send me the sweetest perfumes.
Beloved night of serene radiance,
you who bring back my tender lover...
ah, come down and veil the earth
with your calm and charming mystery.
My happiness is re-born under your wings.
O night, more beautiful than any day:
ah, come down and again make
the dawn of my love shine forth.
Beloved night! Ah, descend..."
~ Eugène Adénis-Colombeau, translated from the French
