Mario Lanza (1921-1959)

"La Spagnola" (Dole- di Chiara). Recorded June 27, 1952, for the final broadcast of The Mario Lanza Show, with studio orchestra conducted by Constantine Callinicos.

Here is Lanza's sole recording of Vincenzo di Chiara's "La Spagnola", and it's a veritable knockout. The tenor is in magnificent voice and sounds like he is having an absolute blast. This is joyful, thrilling singing, yet another treasure from the Coca-Cola show archives!

Here is the text for Lanza's version:

Bella spagnola che canti
tu sei piu vaga d'un fior !
sogno di luce, che incanti
come una maga d'amor.

Vieni ! vieni!
stretto al tuo seno ognor,
la spagnola da te sapra
come e dolce la volutta!

Bella che senti nel core
l'ansia dei baci fiorir.
Bella, che cerchi l'amore
come un supremo desir
