Amour Viens Aider ("Love, Thy Help") is one of the most performed arias in the operatic repertoire. It appears at the opening of the second act of the opera Samson and Delila, in a scene where Delila pleads to an ancient love deity to help her seduce and defeat the Hebrew warrior Samson. This arrangement by Paul Whear effectively translates the haunting aria to the solo percussion medium, allowing instrumentalists to play and enjoy a fine Romantic miniature.
