Description

Aria of Sultan Mamud from Vivaldi’s 1720 La verità in cimento, RV 739. Comes in written key and transposed baroque pitch.

Libretto (Italian)

ARIA
Quando serve alla ragione
Il rigor d’un alma forte
E dover dar crudeltà.
Sol qualor cieca s’oppone
A virtù cangia sua sorte e rea si fà.

Translation (English)

ARIA
When rigor serves the reason
of a strong soul,
one must act cruelly.
Only when blind is one opposed
to virtue, that changes his fate and makes him guilty.
