|Contents:||CD 1.. Rome is now ruld by the Etruscan upstart --

Here is the thirsty evening --
Who reaches heaven first --
To the lovely Lucretia --
Collatinus is politically astute --
There goes a happy man --
Tarquinius does not dare --
My horse My horse ... Tarquinius does not wait --
Their spinning wheel unwinds --
