Title: Ben qui si mostra il ciel
Composer: Cipriano de Rore
Original text and translations
Ben qui si mostra il ciel vago e sereno,
Beautiful shows here the sky, vague and clear,
Note: it is particularly difficult to translate the manifold meanings of Renaissance languages (Italian, in this case). Many of the repetitions that appear in the English translation are not present in the Italian original, which allows many more "nuances" to the various love expressions.
