Saltavan ninfe, satiri e pastori
Fra gli odorati fiori,
E cantando dicean Viva l’amore
Ch’in un moment’ impiag’ e san’ il core..

German.png German translation

Es tanzten Nymphen, Satyrn und Hirten
zwischen den duftenden Blumen,
und singend riefen sie aus: Es lebe die Liebe,
die zugleich das Herz verwundet und heilt.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
