Anyway, today I have been trying to do searches for the English lyrics to Santa Lucia..so far with no success. I'm not brave enough to attempt the Italian lyrics, so if anyone has the English translation, or can point me in the right direction, I would be grateful, please. I think my tutor has them, but I won't be seeing him now for a couple of weeks.
"Now 'neath the silver moon ocean is glowing,
O'er the calm billow soft winds are blowing.
Here balmy breezes blow;pure joys invite us.
And as we gently row, all things delight us.
Hark, how the sailor's cry joyously echoes nigh:
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
Home of fair poesy,* realm of pure harmony.
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!"International Folk Songs for Solo Singers
arranged by Jay Althouse.
*a poem or verse
Hope this helps.
