"Langue il fior su l'arsa sponda" (Vivaldi)

Ann Hallenberg with Modo Antiquo under the direction of Federico Maria Sardelli

Langue il fior su l'arsa sponda
Perché il sol seccata ha l'onda
Col cocente suo splendor.

Ma l'istesso Sole ancora
Che nel Cile fa uscir l'Aurora
La ristora col suo amor.

The flower droops on the arid shore.
For the sun has dried out the waters
With its burning rays.

But that same sun
Which brings forth dawn from the sky
Will revive the flower with its love.
