O come vaneggiate, donna (SSATB)
Giovanelli (his name is also rendered as Giovannelli) held various posts in Rome, eventually succeeding Palestrina at the Cappella Giulia in San Pietro. He subsequently became maestro di cappella at the Sistine Chapel. The text of this somewhat misogynistic reproach to a former lady-love is generally attributed to Guarini. Giovanelli’s persistent dotted rhythms and energetic lines seem to underscore the protagonist’s new-found vitality. See also the versions by Wert and Pallavicino.

Morirò di dolor (S MS ATB) *NEW*
Giovanelli's setting of this rather conventional expression of lovesickness adds an element of gravitas to the whole. An "Englished" version, "For very grief I die," was published by Morley in 1598.

Dolcemente dormiva la mia Clori (SATTB) *NEW*
Giovanelli's rendition of this titillating, the-devil-made-me-do-it text by Tasso is perhaps less colorful overall than those by Monteverdi or Pallavicino, but it displays some nice touches, like the jangling rhythms on "Stolto, che fai?" and the suggestive descending scalar sequence on "io mi chinai."
