Bellini: Norma, Act 1, “Casta Diva” - Anna Netrebko (Anna, The Best of Anna Netrebko, 2009)

Casta Diva Italian Lyrics
Casta Diva, che inargenti
queste sacre antiche piante,
a noi volgi il bel sembiante
senza nube e senza vel…
Tempra, o Diva,
tempra tu de’ cori ardenti
tempra ancora lo zelo audace,
spargi in terra quella pace
che regnar tu fai nel ciel…

Casta Diva English Translation
Pure Goddess, whose silver covers
These sacred ancient plants,
we turn to your lovely face
unclouded and without veil…
Temper, oh Goddess,
the hardening of you ardent spirits 
temper your bold zeal,
Scatter peace across the earth
Thou make reign in the sky…

Bizet, Les Pêcheurs de Perles: A cette voix…Je crois entendre encore

Rolando Villazon, tenor

Münchner Rundfunkorchester, Michel Plasson

English translation of the romance:

I believe I hear again,
hidden beneath the palm trees,
her tender, resonant voice,
like a dove’s song,

o enchanting night,
divine rapture,
o charming memory,
mad intoxication, sweet dream.

In the starlight,
I believe I see her again,
parting her long veils,
in the warm breezes of the evening,

o enchanting night,
divine rapture,
o charming memory,
mad intoxication, sweet dream.
