BONUS TRACK: “I Have Dreamt” from Wuthering Heights by Bernard Herrmann, libretto by Lucille Fletcher

“I have dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me forever – and have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and have altered the color of my mind. I dreamt once that I was in heaven, and that heaven did not seem to be my home. And I broke my heart with weeping to see the heath again. And the angels flung me back to Earth, and Wuthering Heights, where I awoke sobbing for joy.”
