From Nabucco, an opera about Nebuchadnezzar(Nabucodonosor in Italian) and his daughters Fenena and Abegaille (an adopted slave).
Set in 586 BC.
This song from the Opera, perhaps the most famous part, is sung by the Hebrew slaves who were on the banks of the River Euphrates nostalgically yearning for their homeland.
