Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

partono. Enrico entra nella sala del Consiglio


SCENA NONA
Atrio nelle prigioni della Torre di Londra.
Il fondo e le porte sono occupate da soldati.


Percy scortato dalle guardie, indi Rochefort



PERCY
Tu pur dannato a morte,
Tu di niun fallo reo?

ROCHEFORT
Fallo mi è grave
L'esser d'Anna fratello.

PERCY
Oh! in qual ti trassi
Tremendo abisso!

ROCHEFORT
lo meritai cadervi,
Io che da cieca ambizIon sospinto,
Anna sedussi ad aspirare al soglio.

PERCY
Oh! amico … al mio cordoglio
Il tuo s'aggiunge. Ah! se sperarti salvo
Potessi ancor, men dolorosa e amara
La morte mi farìa questa speranza.

ROCHEFORT
Dividiamci da forti … alcun s'avanza.


SCENA DECIMA
Hervey, e detti


HERVEY
A voi di lieto evento
Nunzio son io. Vita concede ad ambi
Clemente il Re.

PERCY
Vita a noi soli! ed Anna? …

HERVEY
La giusta sua condanna
Subir dev'ella.

English Libretto or Translation:

(They leave. Henry enters into the Counsel chamber.)

Scene 3
Enrico enters into the Counsel chamber.
A hall in the prison in the Tower of London. The back and the doors and occupied by soldiers.
Percy escorted by the guards, then Rochefort.

PERCY:
Are you condemned to death too,
you who are guilty of no fault?

ROCHEFORT:
My fault is serious,
that of being Anna's brother.

PERCY:
Oh! what a terrible abyss
you are drawn into.

ROCHEFORT:
I deserve to fall.
I, who was goaded by blind ambition,
seduced Anna to aspire to the throne.

PERCY:
Oh! friend…to my sorrow
yours is added. Ah! if I could still hope
for you to be saved, this hope would make death
less painful and less bitter to me.

ROCHEFORT:
Let us share our strength…someone is coming.

Scene 4
Hervey and above.

HERVEY:
I am the messenger of glad tidings to you.
The King has mercifully granted
life to you both.

PERCY:
Life to us! And Anna?…

HERVEY:
She must submit
to her just condemnation.
