Early JDF.. there's another one of him singing 'languir' from a few years later, but this is him pretty young (only 26 here, I believe), just after his time at the AVA in Philly. He cuts some corners for sure but what a voice, even back then! He sings so well that the horn soloist can't even play the opening phrase..

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

SCENA TERZA
Lindoro solo, indi Mustafà.

Cavatina

LINDORO
Languir per una bella
E star lontano da quella,
E' il più crudel tormento,
Che provar possa un cor.
Forse verrà il momento;
Ma non lo spero ancor.
Contenta quest'alma
In mezzo alle pene
Sol trova la calma
Pensando al suo bene,
Che sempre costante
Si serba in amor.

English Libretto or Translation:

SCENE THIRD
Lindoro alone, then Mustafa.

Cavatina

Lindoro
Languir for a beautiful one
And stay away from that,
It is the most cruel torment,
That proving can be a cor.
Perhaps the time will come;
But I still do not hope so.
Content this alma
In the midst of the pains
Sol finds calm
Thinking about his good,
Which is always constant
You keep in love.
