Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

PASTORE I
Mira ch'a sé n'alletta
L'ombra, Orfeo, di quei faggi,
Or che infocati raggi
Febo dal ciel saetta.

Ritornello

PASTORE II
Su quell'erbose sponde
Posiaimci e in vari modi
Ciascun sua voce snodi
Al mormorio dell'onde.

Ritornello

PASTORE I e PASTORE Il
In questo prato adorno
Ogni selvaggio nume
Sovente ha per costume
Di far lieto soggiorno.


Ritornello

Qui Pan, Dio de' pastori,
S'udì talor dolente
Rimembrar dolcemente
Suoi sventurati amori.

Ritornello

Qui le Napee vezzose,
Schiera sempre fiorita,
Con le candide dita
Fur viste a coglier rose.

Ritornello

English Libretto or Translation:

FIRST SHEPHERD
Look, Orpheus, how the shade
of those beech trees invites us,
now that Phoebus darts
burning rays from heaven.

Ritornello

SECOND SHEPHERD
On these grassy banks
let us rest, and let each
in his own way let loose his voice
to the murmur of the waters.

Ritornello

FIRST & SECOND SHEPHERDS
In this flowery meadow
every sylvan deity
is often wont
to linger for his pleasure.

Ritornello

Here Pan, the shepherds' god,
has sometimes been heard lamenting,
sweetly recalling
his unrequited loves.

Ritornello

Here the charming dryads,
a company always decked with flowers,
have been seen gathering roses
with white fingers.
