Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Arioso: Angelica and Medoro

Angelica:
Ritornava al suo bel viso, fatto già bianco e vermiglio,
Con la rosa unito il giglio dal pallor delle viole.

Medoro:
E il mio cor da me diviso si struggeva in fiamma lieve,
come suol falda il neve discoperta ai rai del sole.

English Libretto or Translation:

Arioso: Angelica and Medoro

Angelica:
Returning to his beautiful face, lily mixing with rose,
Came health, replacing the colour of violets.

Medoro:
And my heart began to glow, consumed by soft flames,
As flakes of falling snow are melted in the sun’s rays.
