I gave myself to human loving (Act 2) 4:12



Abelard, castrated by Fulbert and his cronies has become a monk and also a very prominent but scandalous teacher, excuses his present situation by blaming his love for Heloise. He is about to face his trial for heresy.

Heloise is bitter that she is forced by Abelard to take vows as a nun whilst still remaining deeply in love with him, despite what has been done to him.
Finale (Act 2)  1:59


Abelard has died. This is the very final moment and is the end of Heloise's 10 minute elegy for him and their lives. It is a sumnation of her love-"You will never be dead to me Not for as long as I live And see you and all we did In my mind's eye."
Am I Late (Act 1)  3:28


Abelard's students have discovered their master may be dallying with a young lady.They are bemused.This number has been converted to a purely instrumental realisation, having been originally notated in Finale and converted to NOTION
