PDF vocal score of three arias from Scarlatti’s 1698 Il prigioniero forunato as performed by mezzo-soprano Teresa Berganzi and pianist Félix Lavilla in their 1975 recital. The arias were transcribed directly from this recording, so are presented in an exquisite 20th century setting, breaking beyond the 17th century stylistic and harmonic conventions. The arranger of these settings is unknown.

Included songs:
• Quell’esser misero (“Incanto”)
• Luce degl’occhi miei (“Ultimo bacio”)
• Datti pace, o sventurato (“L’Incostante”)

Keys available:
• Original (F4-F5)

Text (Italian)

Incanto
Quell’esser misero
Lo rende amabile
Nel mio pensier.
E par, che l’anima
Voglia esser carcere
D’un prigionier.

Ultimo bacio
Luce degl’occhi miei,
Se la mia vita sei
Devi morir con me.
Prima ch’ad altri in braccio
Sciolga quel dolce laccio,
Voglio morir con te.

L’Incostante
Datti pace,
O sventurato,
L’amor mio non è per te.
Non mi piace
Un cor privato,
Tendo lacci al cor d’un Rè.

Text (English)

Enchantment
Being miserable
Made him lovable
In my thoughts.
It seems that the soul
Wants to be a dungeon
For a prisoner.

The Last Kiss
Light of my eyes,
If you are my life,
You must die with me.
Before anyone else in your arms
Melts this sweet snare,
I want to die with you.

The Fickle One
Calm yourself,
Unfortunate one,
My love is not for you.
I’m not interested in
A private heart.
I have a king’s heart in my snare.
