Berlioz: Roman Carnival Overture (Royal Academy of Music, conducted by James Murray)

Overtures by Hector Berlioz


Au Bord de l’eau (Faure) – Danee Robinson, Soprano

Alert iconAlert icon
Au Bord de L’eau, Danee Robinson
S’asseoir tous deux au bord [d’un]1 flot qui passe,
  Le voir passer ;
Tous deux, s’il glisse un nuage en l’espace,
  Le voir glisser ;
À l’horizon, s’il fume un toit de chaume,
  Le voir fumer ;
Aux alentours si quelque fleur embaume,
  S’en embaumer ;
[Si quelque fruit, où les abeilles goûtent,
  Tente, y goûter ;
Si quelque oiseau, dans les bois qui l’écoutent,
  Chante, écouter…]2
Entendre au pied du saule où l’eau murmure
  L’eau murmurer ;
Ne pas sentir, tant que ce rêve dure,
  Le temps durer ;
Mais n’apportant de passion profonde
  Qu’à s’adorer,
Sans nul souci des querelles du monde,
  Les ignorer ;
Et seuls, [heureux]3 devant tout ce qui lasse,
  Sans se lasser,
Sentir l’amour, devant tout ce qui passe,
  Ne point passer!

Danee Robinson: Remember When It Rained

Wash away the thoughts inside
That keep my mind away from you.
No more love and no more pride
And thoughts are all I have to do.

Ohhhhhh Remember when it rained.
Felt the ground and looked up high
And called your name.
Ohhhhhh Remember when it rained.
In the darkness I remain.

Tears of hope run down my skin.
Tears for you that will not dry.
They magnify the one within
And let the outside slowly die.

Ohhhhhh Remember when it rained.
I felt the ground and looked up high
And called your name.
Ohhhhhh Remember when it rained.
In the water I remain
Running down

BRACEVILLE, Ill. — Radioactive tritium has leaked from three-quarters of U.S. commercial nuclear power sites, often into groundwater from corroded, buried piping, an Associated Press investigation shows.

The number and severity of the leaks has been escalating, even as federal regulators extend the licenses of more and more reactors across the nation.

Tritium, which is a radioactive form of hydrogen, has leaked from at least 48 of 65 sites, according to U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission records reviewed as part of the AP’s yearlong examination of safety issues at aging nuclear power plants.

Leaks from at least 37 of those facilities contained concentrations exceeding the federal drinking water standard — sometimes at hundreds of times the limit.
