Act III: Bridal Chorus excerpt: "[Sieg]reicher Muth, Minne so rein" ... "denkt lang der Stunde hier!"

Metropolitan Opera Chorus & Orchestra--

Alfred Hertz

February 7, 1903

[Glackens 35.]

Singing a bridal song, men and women of the court escort Elsa and Lohengrin into the bridal chamber.



[Di] freschi fiori sparger vogliam
l'eletta stanza, tempio d'amor,
tempio d'amor!

Noi pur benediciamo,
se il ciel vi benedý;
eterna vi auguriamo
la gioia di tal dý.



With fresh flowers we wish to strew
the chosen room, the temple of love,
the temple of love!

We also bless you,
as does heaven itself;
we wish you eternally
the happiness of this day.
