Vedi L’Aurora

Text: Petrarch, The Triumph of Death
Music: Orlando di Lassus.
Published: Chester Music

Vedi l’aurora de l’aurato letto rimenar a mortali il giorno;
e’l sole gia fuor de l’ocenano insino al petto.
Questa vien per partirsi: onde mi dole.
S’a dir hai altro, studia d’esser breve e col tempo dispensa le parole.

Translation:

Aurora rises from her golden bed and restores the day to us mortals: the sun is already lifting its breast above the ocean.
However, the dawn comes to part us, thus my grief.
If you have more to say to me, please be brief and shorten your words to fit the little time that remains to us.
