Joyce Didonato : Joyce DiDonato - In War & Peace - Lascia ch'io pianga

A short film from the new album: In War & Peace: Harmony through Music. Filmed on location in Santa Fe, Handel's timeless aria speaks to our world today in a moving and hopeful way.

"Allow that I weep
over my cruel fate,
and that I may sigh
for the freedom.

Let my sadness shatter
these chains of my suffering,
if only out of pity."
