Non al suo amante Jacopo da Bologna
Not did Diana ever please her lover so much (14th Century)
As pleases me the shepherdess washing her white veil
Which shall protect her fair hair from the sun and the breeze:
So that it made me tremble with a chill of love.
Voi ve n'andat al cielo Jacob Arcadelt
Ye go heavenward) ye eyes blessed and holy, 054-1575)
While I remain saddened in sorrow and tears.
And if you cannot see your own heart,
Then look at mine which you hold imprisoned within you.
Da cosi dotta man sei statto fatto Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina
A skillful band painted you, fair portrait. (C.1526-i594)
I would not know whether you are alive, or my eyes are deceived.
Why do you not bestow on me one look, if you breathe and feel?
If not, why do you burn through to my heart?
