Molti sospiri per nulla

Thomas Augustine Arne (1710 – 1778): Sigh no more, ladies, dalle musiche di scena (1748) per Much ado about nothing di W. Shakespeare. Alexander Young, tenore; Martin Isepp, clavicembalo; Wiener Rundfunkorchester, dir. Brian Priestman.

    Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more.
        Men were deceivers ever,
    One foot in sea, and one on shore,
        To one thing constant never.
    Then sigh not so, but let them go,
        And be you blithe and merry,
    Converting all your sounds of woe
        Into hey down derry.
 
Sing no more ditties, sing no more
        Of dumps so dull and heavy.
    The fraud of men was ever so
        Since summer first was leavy.
    Then sigh not so, but let them go,
        And be you blithe and merry,
    Converting all your sounds of woe
        Into hey down derry.
