Engl. Trans  (Gesualdo)  T'amo mia vita

I love you, my life!
speak to me, my beloved,
and this one sweet word, it seems,
changes my heart,
and the joy becomes overpowering.
O voice of sweetness and joy
take her quickly, love;
press her into my breast.
my soul only breathes for you:
I love you! My life, be my life.
