“Nel cor più non mi sento” is another standard from the beginning singer’s 24 Italian Songs and Arias. It was composed by Giovanni Paisiello (1740-1816) for his opera La Molinara (1788). Paisiello is also known for his opera, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, which later was eclipsed by Rossini’s version.

Below is tenor Luciano Pavarotti singing “Nel cor più non mi sento” in October of 1989 with Leone Magiera on piano.

This version is sung by Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky in a performance in Moscow in 1991.
