Note: In this rousing chorus from Verdi’s Il Trovatore (The Troubadour), the gypsy blacksmiths sing about their love of wine, women, and hammering on white-hot metals while standing next to a blazing furnace in the sweltering heat of a smithy. To each their own. The audio sample includes the beginnings of both the chorus and the more famous refrain.
