Ferretti and Rossini’s gift to us

As we approach the coming year, and reflect on the challenges of the past one, here is a message to lift our spirits from Alidoro ( who embodies Feretti’s words and Rossini’s music). The text is often overlooked because the music is so sublime and perhaps also¬† because translations are inadequate. This should give us all hope, whether or not we are the “fanciulla” Alidoro adresses.
