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!

Al pie del duro sasso'ove sepolto

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Al pie del duro sasso'ove sepolto
Su'il suo dólce maestro'anzil suo core
Ch'hor non trova e non sa chi glie l'ha tolto

Stava piangendo'e colma di dolore
L'aflitta Maddalena'e sconsolata
Ne sa partir, che nol permette'amore

Et come tortorella sconpagnata
Pur all'amato nido si raggira
Dal suo dolce consorte' abbandonata

Tal geme Maddalena'et tal sospira
Per lo sposo diletto'e pur lo chiama
Et pur lo cerca, et pur d'intorno mira

Asconde il sol la lucida chioma
Spezzansi i sassi vivi apronsi i monti
Trema la terra, e'l ciel, turbansi l'acque

Et dice lagrimand'ove sei ita
Speranza mia o piu che gemme'et oro
Ricca spoglia gentil, chi t'ha rapita ?
