Rossini: L'assedio di Corinto "Giusto Ciel!" - Marilyn Horne

Singer: Marilyn Horne

My favorite mezzo soprano Marilyn Horne is singing Rossini's "Giusto Ciel! In Tal Periglio" from L'assedio di Corinto.

Quite possibly the most beautiful woman voice that ever graced human ear..

About the score: As you can tell I am using pdf files for my videos and there is no way to transpose the pdf scores.. So, some of my videos may not be a match.

I hope you can figure out all those scribbles over the score.. Some do match the way M. Horne is singing and some don't. But there is such variation in interpretation of this aria that I doubt there can be a perfect-match edition of this score. Specially if it is Horne who is singing:)) Also, I do not have the choir partition, but one cannot get everything one wants, right? :))

Gioachino Rossini : L'assedio di Corinto "Giusto Ciel! In Tal Periglio"
Libretto: Luigi Balocchi & Alexandre Soumet

Giusto Ciel! in tal periglio
Più consiglio,
più speranza Non ci avanza,
Che piangendo, che gemendo
Implorar la tua pietà, etc

Merciful Lord! In such peril
the only course,
the only hope which remains to us,
is weeping, lamenting
to beg Thy mercy, etc..
