Sovente il sole – Vivaldi

Vivaldi’s aria I much enjoy listening during tranquil moments, with a rough translation by yours truly.

 Sovente il sole
 Risplende in cielo
 Piu bello e vago
 Se oscura nube
 Gia l’offuscò.
 E il mar tranquillo
 Quasi senza onda
 Talor si scorge,
 Se ria procella
 Pria lo turbò. 
Often the sun
Shines in the sky
More beauteous and vague
Even when it is obfuscated
By the dark cloud. 
And the tranquil sea
Almost without waves
Thereby emerges,
After the hostile tempest
Had disturbed it
