La Pastorella dell'Alpi (1835)

La Pastorella dell'Alpi

Son bella pastorella,
Che scende ogni mattino
Ed offre un cestellino
Di fresche frutta e fior.
Chi viene al primo albore
Avrà vezzose rose
E poma rugiadose,
Venite al mio giardin.
Chi nel notturno orrore
Smarrì la buona via,
Alla capanna mia
Ritroverà il cammin.
Venite, o passaggiero,
La pastorella è qua,
Ma il fior del suo pensiero
Ad uno sol darà!

Composer

Despite setting new standards for opera, he gave up large-scale composition in his thirties, focusing instead on pieces for voice, choir, piano, and chamber ensembles.
