Editor: James Gibb (submitted 2018-02-19).   Score information: A4, 4 pages, 70 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Reformatting of #26774, with minor corrections to the underlay, and to slurring. The Alto 2 and Tenor have exactly the same range, so this edition is set for SATTB, transposed down a major 2nd.

Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Hai rotto e sciolto e spento a poco a poco
lo strale, il laccio e’l foco,
che punse e che legò, ch’arse il mio core.
O me beato, Amore,
ch’or sento, e senza pena,
altro dardo, altra fiamma, altra catena.

English.png English translation

Little by little you have broken and loosed and quenched
the arrow, the bond and the fire,
which stung and held and burned my heart.
O how happy I am, Love,
that now I feel, without pain,
another dart, another flame, another chain.

Translation from #26774
