Beautiful music, part I

I'd like to start sharing music with you on my blog, alongside everything else. If I can get my act together, I'll record something for you, my own singing, maybe an original composition...hmmm...but for now, here's a gorgeous piece by Antonio Vivaldi, sung exquisitely by Cecilia Bartoli. Here's the translation thanks to Wikipedia:

Sposa son disprezzata (in Italian)

I am wife and I am scorned,
I am faithful and I'm outraged.
Heavens, what have I done?
And yet he is my heart,
my husband, my love,
my hope.

I love him, but he is unfaithful,
I hope, but he is cruel,
will he let me die?
O God, valor is missing -
valor and constancy.
