Description: It seems that the attribution of this work to Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739) is in question. Recmusic.org has it by Francesco Bartolomeo Conti (1681-1732), and Wikipedia has it by Alessandro Parisotti (1853-1913). In any case this is an arrangement of the original work by Parisotti.

Il mio bel foco,
o lontano o vicino ch’esser poss’io,
senza cangiar mai tempre per voi,
care pupille, arderà sempre.

Quella fiamma che m’accende,
piace tanto all’alma mia,
che giammai s’estinguerà.

E se il fato a voi mi rende,
vaghi rai del mio bel sole,
altra luce ella non vuole
nè voler giammai potrà.
