Tu del mio Carlo al seno, Amalia's aria from I Masnadieri

Oh! mia la pace 
che nella vita gli rapisti, in morte 
funestar non gli puoi! No! non penetra 
l'esecrata tua voce in quella pietra. 

Tu del mio Carlo al seno 
volasti, alma beata, 
e il tuo soffrir terreno 
or si fa gioia in ciel. 
Sol io qui vivo in pianto 
deserta e sconsolata; 
oh! quanto invidio! oh, quanto, 
il tuo felice avel!
