LyricsPoetic Translation
Da così dotta man sei stato fattoBy such a skillful hand were you effected,
Vaghissimo ritrattoO portrait, and perfected,
Che io non saprei ridir se viva seiI wondered if you were a living beauty,
O se fai dolce inganni agli occhi miei.Or if my eyes conspired to delude me.
Giovanni Pierluigi da PalestrinaCarol Anne Perry Lagemann
