Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

PERCY
Voi, Regina … E fia pur vero
Che di me pensier vi prese?

ANNA
Innocente … il regno intero
Vi credette … e vi difese …

ENRICO
E innocente io vi credei,
Perché tal sembraste a lei …
Tutto il regno, a me il credete,
V'era invan mallevador.

PERCY
Ah, Regina!
si prostra a' suoi piedi e le bacia la mano

ANNA
Oh Dio! Sorgete.

ROCHEFORT
(Ei si perde!)

ENRICO
con la massima indifferenza
Hervey.

HERVEY
Signor.

English Libretto or Translation:

PERCY:
You, the Queen!…Then it was really true
that you took thought of me!

ANNA:
Innocent…the whole kingdom believes you to be and defends you…

HENRY:
And innocent I believed you to be,
since thus you seemed to her…
All the kingdom, believe me,
was surety for you in vain.

PERCY:
Ah, Queen?

(He kneels at her feet and kisses her hand)

ANNA:
Oh God! Get up.

ROCHEFORT:
(He losing control!)

HENRY:
(with the greatest indifference)

Hervey.

HERVEY:
Sire.
