LyricsPoetic Translation
Angelica biltà venut’è in terra:Angelic beauty's come to make earth more fair.
Dunque ciascun c’ama veder belleççaSo all for whom it's more than just a duty
Virtù atti veçosi e legiadria.To seek for virtue's charm, come and be near it.
Vengha veder costei che sol vagheça,Come savor only grace, come see her beauty
Arà di lei si com’à l’alma miaJust as was seen and felt by my own spirit.
Ma non credo con pace tanta guerra.I don't believe that peace can come from warfare.
Angelica biltà venut’è in terra.Angelic beauty's come to make earth more fair.
Francesco LandiniCarol Anne Perry Lagemann
