Lucia Popp sings “In Trutina” (Between Chastity and Love) in Carl Orff’s Carmina Baruna.

In Trutina

In trutina mentis dubia
fluctuant contraria
lascivus amor et pudicitia.
Sed eligo quod video,
collum iugo prebeo:
ad iugum tamen suave transeo.

In Trutina (English Translation)

I am suspended
between love
and chastity,
but I choose
what is before me
and take upon myself the sweet yoke.
