“Voglio piangere” aria for Maddalena from the oratorio

La Maddalena a’ piedi di Cristo (1690)

by Giovanni Battista Bononcini (1670-1747)

Lavinia Bertotti, Maddalena with Ensemble Concerto under Roberto Gini

Voglio piangere,

sin che frangere possa

il nodo che mi lega.

Sempre il cielo

apparve amico a’ desiri,

a’ sospiri d’un alma che prega.

I want to weep,

till I can break

the knot that holds me bound.

Heaven seems ever

to be receptive towards

the wishes and

the sighs of a soul that prays.
