PBS - American Experience / Lascia ch'io pianga

So I saw this song featured on a commercial for PBS's American Experience, I emailed and got the name of the song:

Lascia ch'io Pianga by Cecilia Bartolli, from the opera Ranaldo Heandel

Love the song, just wondering if anyone had sheet music before I went ahead and ordered it. Thx!

(words and youtube vid below the cut)

Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte, / Let me weep my cruel fate
E che sospiri la libertà! / and sighs for liberty!
E che sospiri, e che sospiri la libertà!
Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!
Il duolo infranga queste ritorte / The grief breaks these twisted
De' miei martiri, sol per pietà / martyrs, only to pity
Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!
E che sospiri, e che sospiri la libertà!
Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!
