Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria: Angelica
Non potrà, non potrà dirmi ingrata,
perchè restai piegata d'un così vago stral.

Se, quando amor l'offese,
ei pur mal si difese dall'arco suo fatal.

English Libretto or Translation:

Aria: Angelica
He will not, he will not call me ungrateful,
because I was pierced by such a beautiful arrow.

When love first struck him,
he could not defend himself against its fatal bow.
