Amandopenerò

Ma semprev’amerò,

Sì, sì, nelmiopenare:

Care, care.

For the glory of adoring you

For the glory of adoring you

I want to love you, o dear eyes.

Loving you, I will suffer,

but always I will love you,

Yes, yes, in my suffering,

Dear, dear eyes.

Without hope of delight

vain affection it is to sigh,

but your sweet glances,

who could ever gaze upon

and not love you?

musical analysis
Musical Analysis

“Per La Gloria d’adorarvi” is from the opera “Griselda”

“Per La Gloria d’adorarvi” is sung in G major scale.

This piece is a love song. The composer expresses this by extending the notes and making the tone smooth and meaningful. While listening, the song has expression as the notes move around its range without making the piece choppy.

This song is very repetitive. Unique parts of the song are sung in forte, with repeating sections sung in pianissimo- almost as an echo.

Why I like this piece
  • After researching this piece;
    • I love the story behind the opera this song was performed in. I would love to go see the opera “Griselda” to hear where this piece fits in.
    • “Per La Gloria” is fun to listen to because you can hear the longing and love throughout the song.
    • I think it is very interesting that in the opera “Griselda” a man sang this piece but today, may women sing it as well.
