Va', pensiero -Verdi
- Classical music composed by Giuseppe Verdi Find English translation of Lyrics below. This video features Va',Pensiero, a chorus from the third act of Nabucco by Giuseppe Verdi, and is accompanied by Spadecaller's visual interpretation, which dramatizes its powerful theme; exiles singing about their homeland ("O my country, so lovely and so lost") Va', Pensiero, Sull'ali Dorate Fly, thought, on wings of gold; go settle upon the slopes and the hills, where, soft and mild, the sweet airs of our native land smell fragrant! Greet the banks of the Jordan and Zion's toppled towers... Oh, my country so lovely and lost! Oh, remembrance so dear and so fraught with despair! Golden harp of the prophetic seers, why dost thou hang mute upon the willow? Rekindle our bosom's memories, and speak of times gone by! Mindful of the fate of Jerusalem, either give forth an air of sad lamentation, or else let the Lord imbue us with fortitude to bear our sufferings!
