Roberto Alagna sings "Suspendez à ces murs mes armes," from Cherubini's "Les Abencérages (1813)

Singer: Roberto Alagna

Alagna has performed a service for lovers of old French music by recording a series of seldom heard pieces which were popular in their day. In this aria from Les Abencérages, the hero Almanzor has won an important battle but lost the flag, which he must retrieve. Here are the words in English:
Recit: Hang on these walls my arms, my banner,/ and as I go into exile from my native land/ may this friendly vault/preserve at least my memory./ It is finished.
Aria: I have seen the hope disappear/ which I had dared to cherish./Beloved region, which saw me born,/you will not see me die./ Noraime, you who are, after my country,/the thing most dear to my heart./I have lost you; my shriveled heart/says farewell to you forever. All is over for me on earth,/and being the unhappy plaything of death/that same death for which I long/awaits me on a foreign shore,/and thus becomes a dreadful torment.
