It sounds much more belcanto in French to me.
Far and Away (Grail Telling)
Far and away, unapproachable to your steps
There is a castle called Montsalvat;
In the middle there stands a luminous temple,
As precious as nothing else on earth is known.
A vessel of miracoulos blessing
Is guarded inside as supreme sanctuary.
It has been brought down by a host of angels,
To be cared for by the purest human beings.
Annually a dove from above approaches
To reinforce its miraculous power;
Its name is Sangrail, and it grants blissfully purest believe
To its knighthood.
Who is predestined to serve the Sangrail
It prepares with supernal power;
Every evil's deception is lost to him,
When he sees it, death's power vanishes;
Even to him who is sent by it to alien lands,
Appointed as fighter for virtue's justice,
His holy power will not be taken away,
If he goes unrecognized there as its knight.
May the Sangrail's blessing be ever of so noble cast,
It must flee the layman's eyes when it is unveiled.
Therefore you shall not doubt the knight,
If you recognize him - he has to leave you.
Now listen, how I reward the forbidden question:
By the Sangrail I was sent to you:
My father Parzival wears its crown,
His knight, I - am called Lohengrin
