Text heard on Sample:
e vidi uscir de l’alto e scender giùe
due angeli con due spade affocate,
tronche e private de le punte sue.

Verdi come fogliette pur mo nate
erano in veste, che da verdi penne
percosse traean dietro e ventilate

‘Vedi là il nostro avversaro’

from Dante's La Commedia, Purgatorio 8
