TUTTI
Nettuno s'onori,
Quel nome risuoni,
Quel Nume s'adori
Sovrano del mar;
Con danze e con suoni
Convien festeggiar.

PARTE DEL CORO
Dal lunge ci mira
Di Giove l'ira,
E in un baleno
Va all'Eghe in seno,
Da regal sede
Tosto provvede,
Fa i generosi
Destrier squammosi
Ratto accoppiar.

Dall'onde fuore
Suonan sonore
Tritoni araldi
Robusti, e baldi
Buccine intorno.
Gia riede il giorno,
Che il gran tridente
Il mar furente
Seppe domar.

TUTTI
Nettuno s'onori, ecc.

PARTE DEL CORO
Su conca d'oro
Regio decoro
Spira Nettuno.
Scherza Portuno
Ancor bambino
Col suo delfino,
Con Anfitrite.
Or noi di Dite
Fe' trionfar.

Nereide amabili,
Ninfe adorabili,
Che alla gran Dea
Con Galatea
Corteggio fate,
Deh ringraziate
Per noi quei Numi,
Che i nostri lumi
Fero asciugar.

TUTTI
Nettuno s'onori, ecc.

Or suonin le trombe,
Solenne ecatombe
Andiam preparar.

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 9 - Chorus
ALL
Let Neptune be honoured!
Let his name resound
and that god, the sovereign
of the sea, be adored.
It is meet that we should celebrate
in dance and music.

PART OF THE CHORUS
From afar he watches
Jove's anger
and in a moment
descends to the sea's depths,
where in his royal seat
he makes ready
and swiftly has
his great scaly steeds
harnassed.
From out the waves
robust tritons
jovially sound
their loud
trumpets around.
Daylight returns,
for Neptune's great trident
has power to tame
the raging sea.

ALL
Let Neptune be honoured! etc.

PART OF THE CHORUS
Neptune blows
on his golden shell,
his royal emblem.
Portunus,
still an infant,
plays with his dolphin
and with Amphitrite.
He made us victorious
over the god of Hades.
Lovely nereids,
adorable nymphs
who with Galatea
form a court
to the great goddess,
o give our thanks
to those gods
who allowed us
to dry our eyes.

ALL
Let Neptune be honoured! etc.
Now let the trumpets sound
and us go to prepare
solemn sacrifice.
