The tragic and majestic rhythm of the sarabande is interwoven with scenes of a strange and ethereal underwater world.
'O Lord, methought what pain it was to drown!
What dreadful noise of waters in mine ears"
What sights of ugly death within mine eyes!'
Clarence's dream from Richard III by William Shakespeare c. 1591
The sarabande ends with a final poignant statement of the No Tengo Mas Que Darte theme.
