[14] SPOSO GENTIL a6

Sposo gentil, al Phebo gratiato,
A cui la lyra ha dato
E l'arte di cantar: sposo felice,
Allor beato con tua Beatrice,
Beata d'ogni ben, theatro di bellezza!
O coppia degna, viva in allegrezza
Et lunga amor, beata
Vedendo lunga razza da voi nata.
[14] SPOSO GENTIL a6

Noble bridegroom, Phoebus (Apollo) favors you
And gave you your lute and
The art of singing: O happy groom,
United in blessedness with your Beatrice,
Full of all goodness, spectacle of beauty!
O worthy pair, live in joy
And in longlasting love, and see, delighted,
How great a posterity will be born of you.

Translation: Ruth van Baak Griffioen / Carolien Steenbergen
