Edition notes: Transposed up a major 2nd, to make alto range easier. Where there are differences between #10154/#10571 and the Denis Stevens edition in The Penguin Book of Madrigals for 4 Voices (1967), I have followed Stevens, apart from the tierce de Picardy at the end. Revised files uploaded 27/08/21. Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score.
