The great inspiring chorus (Coro dei marinai) comes to mind where the Argonauts row and Orpheus (Gino Mattera) sings with the lyre:

I wish I could make out the words to sing along with them.

The lyrics of Orpheus are:

Deh, Anfitrite del mar [O Amphitrite of the sea]

venti del ciel [winds of heaven]

invochiamo. [we invoke.]
