Choir performs Mozart

“Luci care, luci belle”, a nocturnes by W A Mozart, was composed around 1783.  The words come from Pietro Metastasio, a librettist from the 18th century.

Luci care, luci belle,
cari lumi, amate stelle,
date calma a questo cuore,
date calma a questo cuore!

Dear lights, beautiful lights,
Dear lights, beloved stars,
Give calm to this heart,
Give calm to this heart!

Continuing our month-long theme of humility, this “night song” reflects the calm that soothes the heart when one beholds the vast Universe of stars.
