Non c'è più fede

Originally for Soprano and basso continuo.
Original Language: Italian

Non c'è più fede, no, no.
Come rea di tradimento,
Fu da amor posta al tormento,
E un rival morte gli diede.

Vestitevi a bruno,
Pensieri dolenti,
Di pianti e lamenti
È il tempo opportuno.
Di doglie ciascuno,
Di pene e tormenti
Deh, facciasi herede.

Non c'è più fede...


Constancy is no more

Constancy is no more.
Convicted of treason,
it was consigned to torture by love,
and a rival has put it to death.

Put on mourning,
sad thoughts,
it's a time
for tears and lamenting.
In grief
let all be heir
to afflictions and torments.

Constancy is no more...

Richard Kolb
