A song for the character of Moroc from "The Enchanter", 1760, an entertainment written by David Garrick. The piece is offered in its original version with orchestral accompaniment, and also with keyboard accompaniment comprising the instrumental parts condensed.
Lyrics: David Garrick

I burn where'er I turn;
Each object feeds the flame.
The winds that whistle care away,
The birds that sing,
The beasts that play,
My wretchedness proclaim.
