The song "Casta Diva" from the opera "Norma" by Vincenzo Bellini

"I suoni di Gommalacca sono suoni di superficie, di striscio...solo i cantanti e gli indovini li praticano, solo i fortunati li ascoltano" - "The sounds of Gommalacca are surface sounds, of smear ... only the singers and the diviners practice them, only the lucky can listen to them"
from "Dei suoni futuri" - "Future sounds" of Tiziano Vignerio
