"Art thou troubled?
Music will calm thee.
Art thou weary?
Rest shall be thine.
Music, a source of gladness,
Heals thy sadness,
At her shrine.
Music, music, ever divine!
Music, music calleth
with voice divine.

When the welcome spring is smiling,
O'er the Earth with flow'rs beguiling
After Winter's dreary reign.
Sweetest music doth attend her.
Heav'nly harmonies doth lend her
Chanting praises in her train,
Chanting praises in her train."

Aria di Bertarido
Dove sei, amato bene!
Vieni, l'alma a consolar!
Sono oppresso da' tormenti
ed i crudeli miei lamenti
sol con te posso bear.
Dove sei...

Bertarido's aria
Where you are, loved well!
Come, let's console you!
I am oppressed by torments
and the cruel my laments
I can bear with you alone.
Where are you...
