Song
  • (L4M - 06) Che veggio ohime - Orfeo

  • (L5M - 01) Io che del ciel - Virt
    Forces: soprano & continuo
    In four sections, all based on the same continuo line this work forms a kind of prologue to the Quinte Musiche due to its expositional style, high-flown language and the fact that is being sung by Virtue. Very florid writing as you can hear in the MIDI preview, it is also very beautiful with a rather unexpected ending. Range: d' - a''
