A concert aria from the repertoire of the castrato Giusto Fernando Tenducci.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Death is now my only treasure,
Death is all the Gods can give.
Fate can not rob me of this pleasure,
None can strength the wretch to live.

Fear no more to pine and languish,
Fear no more the wrack of life,
Pain and torture, toil and anguish;
Death shall end the feverish strife.
