Donne leggiadre e belle,
e voi signor, che con l'alte e pregiate
cotanto e dolci e grate
vostre presenze: queste nozze avete
fatto gioiose e liete
e tal che più non si potra onorare.

Ladies, graceful and lovely,
and you, sir, amongst the nobility and then esteemed,
your presence so gentle and gracious:
you have made these nuptials
joyful and happy,
so much that none could possibly honor you more.

Translation by Allen Garvin
