Scoppia in pianto la Peri
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Tenore solo e Quartetto vocale
 Scoppia in pianto la Peri, e per le lacrime sembra
 farsi più pura l'aria là intorno, e sorridere il cielo.
 Perché sta annidata una magia nelle lacrime
 versate per gli uomini da un'anima così nobile.
