We have to sing a classical music piece in some language other than English for the final exam in my voice class. I've had a devil of a time picking a good song; for a while I wanted to do "Core 'Ngrato" which isn't from any opera the teacher prefers we not do an aria but turns out to be just a little bit past what I can manage.
And no wonder, it was written in specifically for Enrico Caruso, the greatest operatic tenor of all times. I finally settled on "Malinconia, Ninfa Gentile", an art song that is a love poem to "Melancholy, gentle nymph". Here's a file of Pavarotti singing it. I couldn't find a good translation of the lyrics, so I did my own. But I can at least be proud that my word-nerd cred is intact; my Italian is primitive at best, and generally limited to informing more fluent speakers that "I can't speak Italian, I'm a Yankee barbarian".
I used at online Italian-English dictionary and my half-remembered High School latin verb conjugations, but this is what I came up with. Melancholy, gentle nymph, I consecrate my life to you; He who your pleasures despises, To true pleasures is not born. Mountains and hills I begged of God; At last I was heard, and I will live content, Never beyond the hills did I desire to go, Never beyond the mountains will I go past. Composer Vincenzo Bellini.
