Spectre infernal!, Hamlet's aria from Hamlet

Spectre infernal! Image vénérée!
O mon pere! O mon roi!
Réponds,hélas! à ma voix eplorée,
parle-moi! Parle-moi!

Pourquoi, reponds, hors de la froide terre
ou je t'ai vu descendre inanimé,
pourquoi te dresser , o mystere!
Le diadème au front et tot armé ?
Spectre infernal! Inage vénérée,
O mon pere! ecc. ecc.
