About This Work

Based on Judges XVI, Camille Saint- SaŽnsís Samson and Delilah is a stirring Biblical drama in three acts, which premiered over 120 years ago on 2 December 1877 at the Court Theatre in Weimar, Germany. In this well-known tale, Samson - one of the oppressed Jews - displays a unique strength when he kills Abimelech, one of the ruling Philistines. With Samson already under the spell of the beautiful Dalilah, the High Priest of Dagon uses Delilah's allure to discover the secret of Samsonís power. Betrayed by Delilah and overpowered by the Philistines, Samson is paraded in his weakness into the temple. With a final prayer to God, enough strength returns for him to bring the temple crashing down on the heads of his enemies. One of the most evocative melodies from the opera is the aria ĎSoftly Awakes My Heartí. Here†Geoff Kingston has arranged this haunting tune for solo Bb Cornet. Playable by performers of all grades this is an ideal platform for the young and not so young soloist. This arrangement is also an ideal accompianment to the origional Mezzo-Soprano (Delilah) soloist.
