  • (Posted 2017-03-18)  CPDL #43631:          (Finale 2014)
Editor: Willem Verkaik (submitted 2017-03-18).   Score information: Letter, 7 pages, 540 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Although I have attempted to stay as close as possible to the original 1624 partbooks, I have been forced to make numerous adaptations to arrive at an acceptable partitura. Nevertheless the end result is worth to be disclosed as an early baroque example for five capable voices and continuo.

Godea del Sol i rai,
La mia Ninfa vezzosa,
Che parea su'l mattin vermiglia Rosa,
E vistola si bella
disse: S'orna il Ciel di nova Stella,
Poi canto da lei vinto:
O Flora, O bella Flora,
Voi sete il Sol io son di voi l'Aurora.
