Bachianas Brasileiras No.5 Aria (Cantilena) (English translation)

English translationEnglish

Brazilian scales in minor No.5 Aria (Chant)

Eventide, a rosy cloud, slow and transparent
over the spot, dreamlike and beautiful!
The moon gently appearing beyond the horizon,
embellishing the eventide, like a sweet maid
preparing herself till she's dreamily gorgeous,
with her soul avid to become beautiful
yelling to heaven and earth, to all of Nature!
Silent are the birds to her sad laments
and reflected on the sea all of Her richness...
Soft the light of the moon awakes already
a fierce desire that laughs and cries.
Eventide, a rosy cloud, slow and transparent
over the spot, dreamlike and beautiful!
thanked 45 times

Hey, evfokas. Thanks for this translation, it's really great!

May I only correct one little thing? 'Brasileiras' translates to 'Brazilian' in English -it's with Z and not with S-.
