Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:


PASTORE III
Ma tu, gentil cantor, s'a tuoi lamenti
GiĆ  festi lagrimar queste campagne,
Perch'ora al suon de la famosa cetra
Non fai teco gioir le valli e i poggi?
Sia testimon del core
Qualche lieta canzon che detti Amore.

English Libretto or Translation:

THIRD SHEPHERD
But you, gentle singer, if once you made
these fields weep at your laments,
why now do you not make the vales and hills
rejoice with you to the sound of your famous lyre?
Let some happy song that Love may inspire
bear witness to your heart.
