Saturday music spot: Klaus Nomi sings Purcell's "The Cold Song" from "King Arthur"

You might not believe it from this presentation, but this song has just turned 330 years old. 

Known variously as "The Cold song," "The Frost song" or "The cold genius" the music was written by Henry Purcell and the libretto by John Dryden and it forms part of the opera "King Arthur," which was first performed in late May or early June 1691.
