In marble halls

Michael William Balfe (1808 - 20 ottobre 1870): «I dreamt that I dwelt in marble halls», aria di Arline (soprano) dall’opera The Bohemian Girl (1843), atto II, scena 1a. Dame Joan Sutherland, soprano; London Symphony Orchestra, dir. Richard Bonynge (registrazione del 1962).

I dreamt that I dwelt in marble halls,
With vassals and serfs at my side,
And of all who assembled within those walls,
That I was the hope and the pride.
I had riches too great to count, could boast
Of a high ancestral name;
But I also dreamt, which pleas’d me most,
That you lov’d me still the same.

I dreamt that suitors sought my hand,
That knights upon bended knee,
And with vows no maiden heart could withstand,
They pledg’d their faith to me.
And I dreamt that one of that noble host
Came forth my hand to claim;
But I also dreamt, which charm’d me most,
That you lov’d me still the same.
