Conosco questo brano da circa 20 anni. Mi sono divertito ad eseguirlo a modo mio, usando la mia voce egli strumenti che so suonare (il flauto traverso e qualche accordo con la chitarra). Spero che chi ascolterà non badi alle imperfezioni tecniche (non sono un cantante), ma al tentativo di realizzare un'interpretazione personale ed intima, e soprattutto di offrire un'esecuzione in cui il testo sia facilmente intellegibile. Penso infatti che anche il testo abbia la sua importanza, e che, nonostante una distanza temporale di 500 anni, certi temi siano universali e ognuno di noi possa sentirli propri e vicini.

I knew this piece 20 years ago. I amused myself performing it , using my voice and the instruments I can play (the flute and the guitar). I hope that the listeners don't mind so much to the technical imperfections (I'm not a singer), but understand and evaluate my attemp to perform the piece in a personal and intimate way, and my attempt to sing it making the words well intellegible (at least for italian speakers). I thing the lyrics are also very important, and, althoug the text was written 500 years ago, such themes are universal and can be felt close and own by anyone.




Lyrics:
Vale diva, vale in pace.
Che propitio il ciel te sia.
Seben parti, più che pria
Tua memoria in mio cor giace.

Vale diva, vale in pace.
Che propitio il ciel te sia.

Lieta sia tua dipartita.
Lieti sian tutti i toi passi.
Solitaria sia mia vita.
Sol fra boschi alpestri e lassi,
Tu te parti e qui me lassi.
Fatto sia quel che ti piace

Vale diva, vale in pace...

El celeste e dolce risco
Che me prese e'l tuo bel sguardo
Fatto m'han da me diviso
Tal ch'oghnor aghiaccio et ardo.
Nel mio cor firmato ha il dardo
Amor pravo e pertinace

Vale diva, vale in pace...


Go, godlike woman, go in peace
May Heaven smile upon you
Though you are going away, more than before
your memory shall dwell in my heart

Go now, godlike woman, go in peace
May Heaven smile upon you

may your departure be glad
may all your steps be glad
my life shall be lone
I will stay alone in the sad mountain woods

Go now, godlike woman, go in peace
May Heaven smile upon you

your heavenly and sweet smile
and your glance that so bewitched me
made me parted from myself in such a way
that I ever am both burning and freezing
Love has set a seal on my heart
with his sharp and cruel dart

Go now, godlike woman, go in peace
May Heaven smile upon you

Since the Fate decreed a route
that drive you far from here
I cannot say other but "go"
though your going breaks my heart
may you remember
my tenacious love

Go now, godlike woman, go in peace
May Heaven smile upon you

If Love, with his geat stenght, has some power
in your chaste and virtuous heart
may he makes some mark
that can extinguish my bruising
Go, because the heaven press you
Though it is sore and hard for me.
