Montserrat Caballe ( Caballé ) highest notes - Bis

Singer: Montserrat Caballé

Caballefans gave you a video with Caballe high notes... As I had had the idea also to put up a video like this, I decided to buttress his effort with a video containing several things he hadn't chosen to include.


- is the link to the video by Caballefans - you will hear2 more high D's there, something akin to an E-flat (a bit frightening), and more C-sharps (check out the studio Aroldo aria!!)

VOLUME ISN'T PARTICULARLY BALANCED, BEWARE!

Information about the performances included will be uploaded shortly, I hope.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:


SCENA TERZA
Anna, indi Giovanna Seymour


Scena e Duetto

ANNA
(partite le ancelle, alza le mani al cielo, si prostra, e dice)

Dio, che mi vedi in core,
Mi volgo a te … Se meritai quest'onta
Giudica tu.

siede e piange

GIOVANNA
Piange l'afflitta … ahi! come
Ne sosterrò lo sguardo?

ANNA
Ah! sì: gli affanni
Dell'infelice aragonese inulti
Esser non denno, e a me terribil pena
Il tuo rigor destina …
Ma terribile è troppo …

GIOVANNA
si appressa piangendo; si prostra a suoi piedi, e le bacia la mano
O mia Regina!

ANNA
Seymour! … a me ritorni! …
Non mi obliasti tu? … Sorgi … Che veggo?
Impallidisci! … tremi? … A me tu rechi
Nuova sventura forse?

GIOVANNA
Orrenda … estrema! …
Gioia poss'io recarvi? Ah! … no … m'udite.
Tali son trame ordite,
Che perduta voi siete. Ad ogni costo
Vuol franti il Re gli sciagurati nodi
Che vi stringono a lui … La vita almeno …
Se non il regio nome …
La vita almen, deh! voi salvate!

ANNA
E come?
Spiegati.

GIOVANNA
In dirlo io tremo…
Pur dirlo io deggio. Il confessarvi rea,
Dal Re vi scioglie e vi sottragge a morte.

ANNA
Che dici tu?

GIOVANNA
La sorte
Che vi persegue, altro non lascia a voi
Mezzo di scampo.

ANNA
E consigliar mel puoi!! …
Tu, mia Seymour!! …

GIOVANNA
Deh! per pietà …

ANNA
Ch'io compri
Coll'infamia la vita?

GIOVANNA
E infamia e morte
Volete voi? … oh Ciel! cedete …
Ve ne consiglia il Re … ve ne scongiura
La sciagurata che l'amor d'Enrico
Ha destinata al trono.

ANNA
Oh! chi è costei?
La conosci? favella. - Ardire ell'ebbe
Di consigliarmi una viltà?... Viltade
Alla Regina sua!! … parla: chi è dessa?

GIOVANNA
singhiozzando
Un'infelice …

English Libretto or Translation:

Scene 3
Anna, then Giovanna Seymour

ANNA:
(after the servants have left she raises her hands to Heaven, kneels and says.)

God who sees within my heart,
I turn to you…judge you
if I deserve this shame.

(sits and weeps)

JANE:
The afflicted lady weeps…Alas! how
will I bear her gaze?

ANNA:
Ah! yes: the anguish
of the unhappy lady of Aragon
must not be in vain, and your severity
has determined a terrible punishment for me…
But it is too terrible…

JANE:
(approaches weeping: kneels at her feet and kisses her hand)

Oh, my Queen!

ANNA:
Seymour…returned to me!
Have you not forgotten me? Arise…What do I see?
You are pale! Are you trembling?
Are you bringing me
new misfortune perhaps?

JANE:
Dreadful…extreme!
Could I give you joy?
Ah! no…listen to me.
The trap is thus laid
that you are lost. At any cost
the King wants to shatter
the unfortunate knots
that bind you to him…
your life at least…
if not your royal name,
alas, save your life at least!

ANNA:
And how? Explain yourself.

JANE:
I tremble to say it…
yet say it I must. Confessing yourself to be guilty
will unbind you from the King and rescue you from death.

ANNA:
What are you saying?

JANE:
The fate which pursues you,
leaves no other means
of escape to you.

ANNA:
And thus you can advise me, my Seymour…

JANE:
Alas, have mercy.

ANNA:
That I should purchase my life with infamy?

JANE:
Do you wish infamy and death?
Queen, oh Heavens, give in…
The King advises you to do it…the wretched woman
who Henry has destined for the throne
implores you.

ANNA:
Oh! Who is this woman? Do you know her?
Speak. Was she so impudent
as to advise me to villainy? Villainy
to her Queen! Speak: who is she?

JANE:
(sobbing)

An unhappy woman.
