Joyce Arleen Auger (or Augér) (September 13, 1939 – June 10, 1993) was an American soprano, admired for her coloratura voice and interpretations of works by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Monteverdi, Gluck, and Mozart.
Music critic Tim Page wrote that she was “the sort of artist whose work not only provided pleasure for her audience but also instruction for her colleagues […] by any standards, hers was an exemplary career […] She sang beautifully for more than a quarter century, she sang great music, and she never bowed or pandered to public taste. She was an artist, steady and serious to the end.”

“Deh, vieni, non tardar, o gioia bella,
vieni ove amore per goder t’appella.
Finché non splende in ciel notturna face
finché l’aria è ancor bruna e il mondo tace.
Qui mormora il ruscel, qui scherza l’aura,
che dolce sussurro il cor ristaura;
qui ridono i fioretti, e l’erba è fresca:
ai piaceri d’amor qui tutto adesca.
Vieni, ben mio: tra queste piante ascose
ti vo’ la fronte incoronar di rose.”
