O del mio dolce ardor

Yay, found a great translation. Thanks to Eric Croxton for his music page in ASU and Google as usual.

O del mio dolce ardor
by Chrisoph Willibald von Gluck

O del mio dolce ardor bramato oggetto!
Oh of [the] my sweet ardor desired (longed) object

L'aura che tu respiri alfin respiro.
the aura that you breathe at last I breathe.

Ovunque il guardo io giro
Everywhere [the] (my) glance I turn

Le tue vaghe sembianze
[the] your vague (elusive) features

Amore in me dipinge,
Love [in] (for) me paints;

Il mio pensier si finge
[the] my thought [to itself] pretends (imagines)

Le piu liete speranze,
the most happy hopes

E nel desio che cosi m'empie il petto
and in the longing which thus [to me] fills [the] (my) bosom,

Cerco te, chiamo te, spero e sospiro!
I seek you, I call you, I hope and I sigh!

Thank you for the lyrics and the translation. I'm looking for lyrics and translation (if possible in spanish, if not in english) of some italian arias, but is difficult to find (Spesso vibra per suo gioco (Scarlatti), Un certo non so che (Vivaldi), Non so piu cosa son, cosa faccio(Cherubino). If anyone could help me, write to me at supersoni40@hotmail.com. Thank you very much

Thank you so much for this! I have to sing this for a class, and I could not find the translation anywhere, so thank you.

Have you heard Fredrik Kempe sing this? It is on his Boheme CD. Beautiful.

Rarely do we hear a good twist of Modern on a Classical piece, yet he pulled it off with grace.

Thanks for the translation of lyrics.

Victoria, which reminds of another great Italian song- Vitoria mio core, I thank you for the lyrics. I have been working on this vocal piece as a singing student. Love it! Thanks!
