Hallo sola en Numancia todo quanto
Debe con justo titulo cantarse,
Y lo que puede dar materia al canto.

Epigraph

Ihr Platze aller meiner stillen freuden,
Euch lass’ich hinter mir auf immerdar!
So ist des geistes rufan mich ergangen,
Mich treibt night eitles, irdisches verlangen.
 

Die Jungfrau von Orleans.

 
Long time against oppression have I fought,
And for the native liberty of faith
Have bled and suffer’d bonds.
 
Remorse, a Tragedy.
