Title and DescriptionScoreMidiTranslation
Rendeasi lieto il giorno (prima parte of 2) (SSATB)
A madrigal on the delights of pastoral life, by a prolific but little-known madrigalist who seems to have passed his career in the out-of-the-way town of Lanciano in the Abruzzo. The setting of the words "passar cantando" (spend [time] in singing) in the seconda parte is particularly charming.

Poi d'invidia ripieno (seconda parte) (SSATB)
Download
La pastorella mia (SSTTB) *NEW*
A lively, animated madrigal with a conventional pastoral theme: Shepherdess declares her love for Shepherd; Shepherd hastens to take advantage of her offer; Shepherdess promptly makes herself scarce.
Download
Perfido è giunto il fine (prima parte of 2) (SSATB) *NEW*
A gloomy tale of betrayal and abandonment, told by a female protagonist. Perhaps a reference to a mythical figure in a similar predicament (Dido, Olympia, Ariadne) is intended.

Ecco i' mi discoloro (seconda parte) (SSATB) *NEW*
Download
Nel mirar gl'occhi (prima parte of 2) (SSATTB) *NEW*
Guarini’s daringly erotic madrigale “Tirsi morir volea,” with its barely concealed depiction of foreplay, consummation, and afterplay, provided a fertile source of inspiration for many composers, including Croce, Marenzio, Pallavicino, Tomasi, Wert and Zanotti (q.v.). The text also generated a considerable number of imitations and knock-offs, of which the version used by Sabino is an early example.
