Tune of the Day: Son vergin vezzosa
from Bellini's “I puritani”, arranged for flute and piano
This joyful polonaise is sung by Elvira near the end of Act I of Vincenzo Bellini's 1835 opera I puritani (The Puritans).
I'm a charming virgin in a wedding dress,
I'm white and humble as an April lily.
Thanks to Luis for suggesting this piece!
