George Frideric Handel: Cara Sposa, aria de Rinaldo.
Carolyn Watkinson, mezzo-soprano.

Cara sposa, amante cara,
dove sei?
Deh! Ritorna a' pianti miei.

Del vostro Erebo sull'ara
colla face del mio sdegno
io vi sfido o spirti rei!
(da capo)

My dear betrothed, my dear one,
where are you?
Come back to my tears!

Evil spirits, I defy you
with the fire of my wrath
on your infernal altar.
(to the beginning)

Cara sposa, amante cara,
Dove sei?
Deh! Ritorna a' pianti miei!

Del vostro Erebo sull'ara,
Colla face dello sdegno
Io vi sfido, o spirti rei!

RINALDO
Beloved spouse, dearest heart
Where art thou?
Woe! Return to him who weeps!

O guilty spirits from thy Erebus altar
My face on of complete contempt,
I defy thee, wicked spirits!
