 Hier treibt ein dichter Kreis

 von allen Seiten hin gedrängt,
 hilft ihnen keine Flucht.
 Schon fallen sie und liegen bald
 in Reihen freudig hingezählt.

Qui una fitta cerchia spinge
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Recitativo: Luca
 Qui una fitta cerchia spinge
 le lepri fuori dalla tana;
 Da ogni parte incalzate,
 nella fuga non trovano aiuto.
 Già cadono e presto giacciono,
 una dopo l'altra in fila.
