Un giorno a Pale sacro
In un bel prato ameno,
Concorsero i pastori l’Arcade ninfe,
De i boschi e monti e de le chiare linfe
Fauni, Silvan, Sileno,
Chi cantava chi a suono,
Movea lieta carole,
Chi di bella ghirlanda facea dono
Al suo ben al suo sole,
Quando con dolci accenti,
Il boscareccio stuol’e i pastori,
Cantaro et iterar le note i venti,
Viva la bella Dori.

On a day sacred to Pales,
 in a beautiful pleasant meadow,
assembled the shepherds and Arcadian nymphs
of the forests, mountains, and clear waters,
fauns, Silvanus and Silenus.
Some sang, some to the sound
moved in joyful dance,
some offered fair garlands to their beloved,
to their sun, when, with sweet accents,
the woodland troop and the shepherds sang
and the winds echoed the sounds:
“Long live fair Dori!”

 Op een dag gewijd aan Pales
in een mooie aangename weide,
verzamelden de herders en nimfen van de bossen,
bergen en klare bronnen van Arcadië,
faunen, Sylvan en Silenus.
Enkelen zongen, of voerden op het geluid
in een vrolijk dansje uit,
anderen boden hun geliefden slingers aan
in de zon, terwijl, met zoete klank,
in het bosland het gezang der herders weerklonk
en de winden de tonen weerkaatsten:
"Lang leve de schone Dori!"
