Io son l'umile ancella (from Adriana Lecouvreur)

Francesco Cilea (1866 - 1950)

Io son l'umile ancella (from Adriana Lecouvreur)

Libretto by Colautti after Scribe and Legouvé

Song text translation:

Too kind, gentlemen!
See: I am barely breathing.
I am the humble servant of the creative Genius:
he gives me the word. I pass it on to the people's hearts.
I am only the accent of his verse, the
echo of the human drama,
the fragile instrument he plays on with his hand.
Mild joyous, atrocious, I am called Faithfulness:
my voice is a breath which will die on the morrow.
