Canzonette a trc voc*1 Salamone Rossi
Donna i1 vostro bel viso (c-I570-i630)
Lady, your fair face opens Paradise to
him who gazes upon it. But rnV wretched
heart lives in nought but tears and sorrows.
How can you bear it, Amore-
if indeed you are the true Lord of 16vers,
that this cruel and spiteful one glories
thus in my pain,
lo mi sento morirc
I feel that death approaches, and
yet I may not speak; for such is my fate
that silent and loving I must sink to death.
I bel ligustri e rose
The fair privets and roses which Nature has
placed in your face, gentle Lady, are my
Scherzan intorno 1 pargoletti arnorl
Little Cupids play around you, o my clear star,
for you, among the beautiful, are most
beautiful of all.
Violets and roses, in dainty garlands, compete
for your favor, for you, among the beautiful,
are most beautiful of all.
