O misera Dorinda (SATTB+bc) *NEW*
A setting for five voices, plus optional continuo, of an excerpt from Pastor fido (Act II Scene ii) in which Dorinda comes to the painful realization that Silvio lacks any feeling for her. A younger contemporary of Monteverdi, Ghizzolo was equally at home in the prima prattica of the late XVI c. and the seconda prattica of the early baroque. See also the versions by Gagliano and Gastoldi.
Cruda Amarilli (prima parte of 3) (SATTB+b.c.) *NEW*
Ghizzolo's setting of the lines in Pastor Fido that introduce the woebegone protagonist Mirtillo (I/ii) includes an impressively wide range of expressive devices, from intensely dissonant passages to rapid declamation to convoluted polyphony. Unusually, his setting is in three parti (the text of the terza parte is drawn from Mirtillo's lines later in the same scene).
Ma grideran per me (seconda parte) (SATTB+b.c.) *NEW*
Ma poich'era ne' fati (terza parte) (SATTB+b.c.) *NEW*
Care selve beate (SSATB+b.c.) *NEW*
A setting of the monologue that introduces the character Amarilli in Pastor fido (II/v), presenting her as a paragon of rustic simplicity and virtue (though capable of imagining a bit of chaste romance). The extended trio sections seem to highlight Amarilli's playful side. The underlay up to bar 16 conforms closely to the standard text, while the remainder is a kind of paraphrase, or perhaps a superseded variant.
