Lascia ch'io Pianga in Antichrist

This aria is used by Lars von Trier in his last film Antichrist - prologue and epilogue.
I have not written yet, that I have already seen the film and going to write a review sometime in next week, but before enjoy with very beautiful music and voice.

et me weep over
my cruel fate,
And that I long for freedom!
And that I long,
and that I long for freedom!
Let me weep over
my cruel fate,
And that I long for freedom!


The duel infringes
these images
of my sufferings
I pray for mercy.
for my sufferances.
I pray for mercy.

Let me weep over
my cruel fate,
And that I long for freedom!
And that I long,
and that I long for freedom!
Let me weep over
my cruel fate,
And that I long for freedom!

In this film a woman sings. But before a man who had such voice (soprano) was called a castrate.

Will write a post about castrates. It is very interesting.
