S’io parto, i’ moro, e pur partir conviene

Ridolfo Arlotti

Madrigal: AabBCC

S’io parto, i’ moro, e pur partir conviene:If I leave, I shall die, and yet it is necessary that I leave:
Morrò, dunque, il mio beneI shall die, then, my love,
E questa mia partitaand this departure
Che mi ti toglie mi torrà la vita.which takes me away from you will take my life from me.
Dolorosa partita che m’uccidi!O painful departure, you who slay me,
Quei che congiuns’Amor perché dividi?Why do you separate those whom Love united?
