"'Una Furtiva Lagrima' - Enrico Caruso 1904"



I can't believe how much more they've cleaned up the sound. I got Caruso 2000, but this is much better.


English translation:

A single furtive tear
from her eyes sprang:
Those joyful boys seem to envy me.
What more need I look for?
What more need I look for?
She loves me! Yes, she loves me, I see it. I see it.
Just for an instant the beating of
her beautiful heart I heard!
And my sighs became as one
fleetingly with her sighs!
Her heart beating, her heart beating to hear,
our sighs confounded as one...
Heavens! Yes I could, I could die!
More I can't ask, I can't ask.
Oh, heavens! Yes I could! Yes I could die!
More I can't ask, I can't ask.
Yes I could die! If I could die of love.
