"Vallon sonore" is an aria from the opera Les Troyens by Earth composer Louis Hector Berlioz.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard listened to the aria in his ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-E just before the decision to violate Starfleet orders, and enter the Battle of Sector 001 in 2373. (Star Trek: First Contact)

"Vallon sonore"
French English
Vallon sonore
Où dès l'aurore
Je m'en allais chantant, hélas!
Sous tes grands bois chantera-t-il encore,
Le pauvre Hylas?
Berce mollement sur ton sein sublime,
Ô puissante mer, l'enfant de Dindyme.
Fraîche ramée,
Retraite aimée,
Contre les feux du jour, hélas!
Quand rendras-tu ton ombre parfumée
Au pauvre Hylas?
Berce mollement sur ton sein sublime,
Ô puissante mer, l'enfant de Dindyme.
Humble chaumière,
Où de ma mère
Je reçus les adieux, hélas!
Reverra-t-il ton heureuse misère,
Le pauvre Hylas?
Berce mollement sur ton sein sublime,
Ô puissante mer, l'enfant....
O echoing valley,
Where, at the break of day,
I once wandered singing, alas!
Will he ever sing again beneath your great woods,
Poor Hylas?
Rock gently upon your sublime breast,
O mighty sea, the child of Dindymus.
O cool bower,
Beloved refuge
From the fires of the day, alas!
When shall you give back your scented shade
To poor Hylas?
Rock gently upon your sublime breast,
O mighty sea, the child of Dindymus.
O humble dwelling,
Where I received
My mother's farewell, alas!
Will he see your happy poverty once more,
Poor Hylas?
Rock gently upon your sublime breast,
O mighty sea, the child....
