POPOLO
Oh voto tremendo!
Spettacolo orrendo!
Già regna la morte,
D'abisso le porte
Spalanca crudel.

GRAN SACERDOTE
Oh cielo clemente!
Il figlio è innocente,
Il voto è inumano;
Arresta la mano
Del padre fedel.

CORO
Oh voto tremendo! ecc.

Partono tutti dolenti

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 24 - Chorus
THE PEOPLE
O terrible vow!
Dreadful sight!
Death now reigns,
and opens wide the gates
of the fearful abyss.

HIGH PRIEST
O merciful heaven!
The son is innocent
and the vow inhuman;
stay the hand
of this pious father.

THE PEOPLE
O terrible vow! etc.
Everyone leaves in sorrow.
