Italian is the language in which Il Grande Leviatano ("The Great Leviathan") is sung by the song's composer, Vinicio Capossela (born December 14, 1965).

Specifically, the Hannover-born singer-songwriter composes songs which keep alive the Folk Music traditions of his family's native Campania in southwest Italy. He also is knowledgeable in English, French and German literary and musical traditions. So it is possible that during a concert he may quote or paraphrase something relevant to water and whales from one of his favorite English writers -- Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1343-1400), Herbert Melville (1819-1891), or Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) -- or even from the Biblical story of Jonah.
