Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Accompagnato: Orlando
Immagini funeste, che turbate quest'alma,
e non avrò sopra di voi la palma?

Si, già vi fuggo e corro, a inalzar col valor novi trofei!
Ti rendo, o bella gloria, i affetti miei!
Ma, che parlo, e non moro! e lascierò quell idolo che adoro?
No!, parto! e fia mia gloria più servir ad amor
ch'aver vittoria!

English Libretto or Translation:

Accompagnato: Orlando
Depressing images, how you sadden me,
Shall I ever be able to defeat you?

Yes, I reject you all and hurry to raise new trophies of valour!
I give you, Glory, my full devotion.
But, can I say this, and not die within! How could I abandon the idol I adore?
No, I leave, and my glory shall be greater in love’s service,
and achieve victory!
