- Edition notes: The repetition sign (segno) is the signum congruentiae in the original. It means that the 5th and 6th verses should be repeated from the respective sign (that is: 1,2,3,4,5,5,6, and then "em parir…" again). / In the original manuscript, the syllabes of the lyrics were not arranged for each note. I have done it a way I think it is the best, but it is just my interpretation.
