ACT 1Sung By
When wars surround, and dangers rife Edred and Banditti
The generous heart, distressed with shame Sifrid
When'er Oppression dares to urge Sifrid

The lover, journeying to his fair Ethelbert
The bird, when summer charms no more Angelina
The mother, anxious for her child Sifrid
Sweet are the fleet and flying hours Sifrid and Ethelbert
ACT 3Sung By
O Memory! Thou fond deceiver Edwin
Turn gently hermit of the dale Angelina
Then turn, my son, and freely share Edwin
When, in our youth, a friend we find Sifrid
But mine the sorrow, mine the fault Angelina
Turn, Angelina, ever dear Edwin
Now burst the shout of joy around Chorus
