Music...by Scarlatti :-)

Hi !

What about some classical music ?

"Le Violette" composed by Alessandro Scarlatti. Good luck 'cause I do love both :-)

http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=1MRYTtlBAVg

Words:

In Italian:

Rugiadose

Odorose

Violette graziose,

Voi vi state

Vergognose,

Mezzo ascose

Fra le foglie,

E sgridate

Le mie voglie,

Che son troppo ambiziose.

In English:

Dewy

Scented

Pretty violets,

You are standing

Shy,

Half hidden

Among the leaves,

And you scold

My desires,

That are too ambitious.

Hi !

You're right, for some reasons that video had been deleted :-/ I should have taken it and put it back by myself...
Fortunately, there are many ones of that nice aria :-))
