NINFA
Muse, onor di Parnaso, amor del cielo,
Gentil conforto a sconsolato core,
Vostre cetre sonore
Squarcino d'ogni nub'il fosco velo;
E mentre oggi propizio al nostro Orfeo
Invochiam Imeneo
Su ben temprate corde,
Sia il vostro canto al nostro suon concorde.

English Libretto or Translation:

NYMPH
Ye Muses, the honour of Parnassus, beloved by heaven,
tender consolation to the dejected heart,
let your harmonious lyres
rend the dark veil from every cloud;
and while we today,
on well?tuned strings,
invoke Hymen's favour on our Orpheus,
let your singing accord with our playing.
