Orpheus' aria, extracted from the opera Orpheus and Eurydice (1972) by Christoph Willibald Gluck, French lyrics by Emmanuel Robin, inspired by the original libretto by Ranieri de Calzabigi and Pierre-Louis Moline. Arrangement for 3 mixed voices and piano by Emmanuel Robin, accessible to the greatest number.

Misfortune! Orpheus, no longer hearing his Beloved, has turned around!
He had gone down to the Underworld to look for Eurydice, and his voice had put Cerberus and the terrible Eumenides to sleep, and he had arrived before the masters of the place, Hades and Persephone, whom he had persuaded to let him leave with his young wife. But the condition was precise: that she follows him in silence, that they do not speak, and especially that he does not turn around before the return to the world of the living!
Eurydice thus returns to the kingdom of the dead, and Orpheus can only cry out his despair!
Rest assured: Gluck, in his opera, will bring in Apollo, the god of Love who cherishes the musician and has showered him with talent, and Eurydice will return to her Orpheus.

A great accessible classic that will move your listeners.
