From the recording Terra Sangue Mare
The Romance Epics inspired the tradition of il Teatro dei Pupi: The Sicilian Marionette Theater, in which almost life-sized puppets told the stories of the Paladins and the Princesses who loved them. One of the princesses was Angelica, who was beloved by many, but gave her heart to the Saracen infantryman, Medoro, an enemy of the Paladins. Fabio Turchetti, swept away by these stories of knights and princesses composed this song as part of a folk operetta for Terra Sangue Mare. The song is in the voice of Angelica as she sings to her beloved Medoro. Thank You to Antonino Campisi for the Sicilian text.
