Già il mandorlo vicino, Fidelia's aria from Edgar

Già il mandorlo vicino
Dei primi fior si ornò; 
Se sovra il mio cammino
Edgar incontrerò,
Troncar ne voglio un ramo
E a lui lo vo' gettar...
Il mattinal saluto
Così gli voglio dar!
Or ben sul mio cammino, 
Edgar, io t'incontrai... 
Bel ramo, ramo candido, 
Io ti potei troncar...
Il mattinal saluto
Così ti posso dar!
O profumata stella,
Che leggi nel mio cuor,
A lui di me favella!... 
Addio, candido fior!
