Today's song from the iTunes Library in

Posted by Azumi on   0 comments

Softly As in a Morning Sunrise

Lyrics:Oscar Hammerstein II
Music:Sigmund Romberg

The song was publishe 1928.

Sigmund Romberg wrote the music and Oscar Hammerstein II
wrote the words for this composition for the musical New Moon,
which premiered in New York at the Imperial Theater
on September 19, 1928.
Actor Robert Halliday introduced the song in the show.
Another song from the musical, “Lover, Come Back to Me,”
was recorded by a number of artists
and had three recordings in the charts for 1929.

The presentation of “Softly...” in New Moon
was more in the nature of an operatic performance,
which seems to have hindered its adaptation by dance orchestras.
Oddly enough, neither of the two big hits
(“Softly...” and “Lover, Come Back...”)
were in the original production that premiered in Cleveland.
The show flopped and in the intervening five months
the two composers came up with what would be the two big hits.


New Moon


Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light of love comes stealing
Into a newborn day

Flaming with all the glow of sunrise
A burning kiss is sealing
A vow that all betray

For the passions that thrill love
And take you high to heaven
Are the passions that kill love
And let it fall to hell
So ends the story

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light that gave you glory
Will take it all away

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light of love comes stealing
Into a newborn day
Flaming with all the glow of sunrise
A burning kiss is sealing
A vow that all betray

For the passions that thrill love
And take you high to heaven
Are the passions that kill love
And let it fall to hell
So ends the story

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light that gave you glory
Will take it all away

Softly as it fades away
Softly as it fades away
Softly as it fades away
Softly as it fades away
