Aprile Millo: Ineggiamo

This, a rare and seasonal excursion into the world of opera for my Sunday music video, is the Easter hymn - or "Ineggiamo" - from Pietro Mascagni's 1890 one-act opera Cavalleria Rusticana.

Me Monk. Me Mander translates the words for us:
Let us sing hymns, the Lord is not dead.
Shining, He has unsealed the tomb,
Let us sing hymns to the risen Lord—
ascended today to the glory of Heaven.
