Giuseppe Verdi: I Masnadieri - Act 2, Scene 1
Dall'infame banchetto io m'involai... Tu del mio Carlo al seno... Carlo vive? O caro accento
Carlo lives? O sweet words,
God heard my lament
and was merciful to my grief.
Carlo lives? Now earth and heaven
are again wreathed in smiles;
the stars and sun are no longer veiled
in mourning; the world is filled with love.
