i. “Deh Vieni Non Tardar” from The Marriage of Figaro……….Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart(1756 – 1791)
[Oh come, do not delay! Come where love calls you to take pleasure, where the brook murmurs, the wind whispeers, and little flowers are laughing. To the joys of love everything here is enticing. Come, my love among these shielding trees where I will crown your head with roses.]
ii. Das Veilchen, K. 476 (The Violet)…………………………..Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart(1756 – 1791)
[A violet stood upon the lea,Hunched o’er in anonymity;So amiable a violet! Along there came a young shepherdess, Light paced, full of contentedness,Along, along, The lea, and sang her song.
Ah!” thinks the violet, “were I just, The fairest flower in the dust, For just a little while yet, Until that darling seizes me
And to her bosom squeezes me! For just, for just, A quarter hour long!”
Ah! And alas!  There came the maid, And no heed to the violet paid,Crushed the poor little violet. It sank and died, yet filled with pride: And though I die, I shall have died, Through her, through her, And at her feet have died.” ]
iii. “Les Chemins De L’Amore”(The Path of Love)……………………….Francis Poulenc(1899 – 1963)
[Paths of my love, I am seeking to remember, but your echoes have been muted. Paths of memory, paths of despair, paths of first love, divine pathways of love!]

i. Sogno d’Infanzia(Dream of Childhood)………………………………Vincenzo Bellini(1801-1835)
[Gentle dream of my first years, from your memories, intoxicate my heart; I have faith only in you in my suffering.
Nothing can banish you from my mind, unknown object of my desire; as you were to me in those days, I still have you here with your smile, with your frown.
Yes, always, dear, I want to adore you, and to think of your beautiful gazes always, and to dedicate all my days to you.
When, from the sky, I watched come down, your figure beautiful and modest, youthful then, ah, I didn’t think that you would delay day if I was miserable.
A quick flash your feeble life,  overwhelmed with itself where it dies, and I still call you.
The instant fades when I saw you, Also what lily on the first hours: you threw yourself towards your shores, and because of you, I have kept my heart from dying.]
ii Vaga luna(Beautiful Moon)…………………………………………………..Vincenzo Bellini(1801-1835)
[Lovely moon, you who shed silver light, On these shores and on these flowers, And breathe the language, Of love to the elements, You are now the sole witness, Of my ardent longing, And can recount my throbs and sighs, To her who fills me with love. Tell her too that distance, Cannot assuage my grief, That if I cherish a hope, It is only for the future. Tell her that, day and night, I count the hours of sorrow, That a flattering hope, Comforts me in my love.]
iii. 5. Per Pieta’, Bell’Idol Mio(For Pity’s Sake from Sei Ariette)……Vincenzo Bellini(1801-1835)
[For pity’s sake, my beautiful idol, do not tell me that I am ungrateful; unhappy and unfortunate enough, has heaven made me. That I am faithful to you, that I languish under your bright gaze, Love knows, the gods know, my heart [knows], and yours knows.]

~ Jane Houlihan(piano), Franca Benedicty Barton(soprano) ~
