Fra quanti amor ("Lamento di Olimpia", prima parte of 17) (SATB) *NEW*
Ariosto's woeful tale of the abandoned heroine Olympia, recounted in Canto X of Orlando Furioso (first published in 1516), was inspired by classical archetypes. The story attracted the attention of many composers, including d’India, Monteverdi – although the attribution to him has been questioned – and Bononcini. Among the first in this long line, however, is Stefano Rossetti (or Rossetto), who published a setting for four, five and six voices in 1569. Its early date notwithstanding, Rossetti’s version is notably ambitious; he sets the complete text of Olympia’s lament (stanzas 19-34), prefaced by a setting of Canto X’s opening stanza – a full 17 sections in all. Appreciation of this work has been unfortunately limited by the fact that no copy of the original Alto partbook is known to survive. However, Prof. James Chater has recently undertaken a reconstruction of the missing parts of the entire work, soon to be published by A-R Editions, and has kindly furnished the accompanying transcription of the opening section. He would welcome comments on the piece.
