Monteverdi’s parole sceniche

Text 9
Alessandro Striggio, “Tu se’ morta,” from La favola d’Orfeo, Act II

(Orfeo)

Tu se’ morta mia vita, ed io respiro?
Tu se’, tu se’ pur ita
Per mai più non tornare, ed io rimango?

(Orfeo)

You are dead, my life, and I still breathe?
you are, you are truly departed
never more to return, and I remain?
