Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

PASTORE I e PASTORE II
Chi ne consola, ahi lassi?
O pur, chi ne concede
Negl'occhi un vivo fonte
Da poter lagrimar come conviensi
lo questo mesto giorno,
Quanto più lieto già tant'or più mesto?
Oggi turbo crudele
I due lumi maggiori
Di queste nostre selve,
Euridice ed Orfeo,
L'una punta da l'angue,
L'altro dal duol trafitto, ahi lassi, ha spenti.

CORO di NINFE e PASTORI
Ahi caso acerbo, ahi fat'empio e crudele.
Ahi stelle ingiuriose, ahi ciel avaro.

PASTORE I e PASTORE Il
Ma dove, ah, dove or sono
Della misera Ninfa
Le belle e fredde membra,
Dove suo degno albergo
Quella bell'alma elesse,
Ch'oggi è partita in su 'I fiorir de' giorni?
Andiam, pastori, andiamo
Pietosi a ritrovarle
E di lagrime amare
Il dovuto tributo
Per noi si paghi almeno al corpo esangue.


CORO di NINFE e PASTORI
Ahi caso acerbo, ahi fat'empio e crudele.
Ahi stelle ingiuriose, ahi ciel avaro.

English Libretto or Translation:

FIRST & SECOND SHEPHERDS
Alas, who can console us?
Or rather, who will grant us
a living fountain in our eyes
that we may weep as we should
on this mournful day,
now all the sadder for having been more joyful?
Today a cruel blast has extinguished
the two brightest lights
of our woods,
Eurydice and Orpheus,
one stung by a serpent,
the other, alas, pierced by grief.

CHORUS of NYMPHS & SHEPHERDS
Ah, bitter blow! Ah, wicked, cruel Fate!
Ah, baleful stars! Ah, avaricious heaven!

FIRST & SECOND SHEPHERDS
But where, ah where now are
the lovely, cold limbs
of the luckless nymph
in which that sweet soul chose
her worthy dwelling, that today
has departed in the flower of her youth?
Let us reverently, shepherds,
go to find them
and with bitter tears
let due tribute,
at least, be paid by us to her lifeless body.

CHORUS of NYMPHS & SHEPHERDS
Ah, bitter blow! Ah, wicked, cruel Fate!
Ah, baleful stars! Ah, avaricious heaven!
