CACCINI "FERRE SELVAGGI"
Wild nymphs, that run through mountains, stop the foot in this long beach, hear my lament that sometimes out of pity has stopped the wind: Beautiful Fillida doesn't love me....
MOZART "LAUDATE DOMINUM"
Praise the Lord, all nations;
Praise Him, all people.
For He has bestowed
His mercy upon us,
And the truth of the Lord endures forever.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and forever,
and for generations of generations.
VIVALDI "DOMINE DEUS"
Lord God, Heavenly King,
God Almighty Father.
BELLINI "CASTA DIVA"
Virtuous Goddess, covering with silver1
these sacred ancient plants,
turn towards us your fair face
cloudless and unveiled
Temper, oh Goddess,
you temper the ardent hearts
furthermore temper the audacious zeal,
spread on earth the same peace
that make you make reign in heaven
IRAIDA YUSUPOVA "SALVE DOLCE VERGINE"
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
BACH - GOUNOD, VERDI, SAINT - SAENS
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
