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 May 6, we are $2,380 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Arresta il passo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Arresta il passo, empia figlia d'Acabbo !
Ah, degli abissi pendi già sulla sponda,
la vendetta di Dio già ti circonda!

Ahimè! Qual forza ignota anima
quelle voci! Io tremo, io sento
tutto inondarmi il seno di gelido sudor.
Ah quale... Qual è la via?
Chi me l'addita?
O Dio! Che ascoltai? Che m'avvenne?
Ove son' io?

Aria (Atalia)
Nell' orror della tempesta
il timor mi veggo accanto;
nè so quanto ancor mi resta
di dolente a paventar.
Ove volgo il mesto ciglio
Ah purtroppo il mio periglio
vado misera a incontrar.
Nell' orror ... (parta)
