Text heard on Sample:
Ah! del suo amore i fregi
qui sparse e lacerò. Qual altra io cerco
prova dell'odio suo? M'aborre e sfugge,
Ah, spergiuro! Ah, tiranno! All'amor mio
questa tu rendi, oh Dio, cruda mercede?
Povera Armida, a chi darai più fede?

Odio, furor, dispetto
dolor, rimorso e sdegno
vengon nel punto estremo
tutti a squarciarmi il petto:
ardo, deliro, e fremo,
ho cento smanie al cor.

(Ah, he has left love’s garlands
strewn here in tatters. What further proof
do I need of his hatred?
He despises and abandons me.
Ah, perjuror! Ah monster! You repay my love,
O gods, with such cruelty?
Unhappy Armida, whom can you ever trust again?

Hate, rage, vexation,
grief, remorse and scorn
come upon me all at once
to crush my heart;
I burn, I rave, I tremble,
my heart is host to a hundred forms of madness.
— English translation © Avril Bardoni, 2012)
