You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Canzone

Language: Italian (Italiano)

[Ma tornerai]1 fra poco,
povero ruscelletto,
del polveroso letto
fra' sassi a mormorar.

Ti varcherò per gioco,
disturberò quell'onde;
ne chiaro fra le sponde 
farò che vadi al mar.

Song

Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)

But you will return soon,
poor little brook,
from the dusty bed
to murmur amongst the stones.

I will cross you in jest 
and disturb those waves.
I shall keep you clear and sparkling as between 
these banks I shall assist your seaward journey.
