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!

Nina

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Tre giorni son che Nina
In letto se ne sta.
Il sonno l'assassina
Svegliatela, per pietà!

E cimbali e timpani e pifferi,
Svegliatemi Ninetta
Perchè non dorma più

E mentre il sior dottore
A visitarla va,
Ninetta per amore
In letto se ne sta.

Nina

Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)

For three days Nina
has stayed in her bed.
The slumber is killing her.
Please waken her!

Cymbals, drums, and shawms,
waken my little Nina,
so she may not sleep any more.

And While the doctor
goes to visit her,
dear Nina, out of love,
stays in her bed.
