Vaghi boschetti di soavi allori (SSATB)
Ingegneri (ca.1535-1592) spent much of his career in Cremona, becoming maestro di cappella at the cathedral there. Although a composer of stature in his own right, in music history he is remembered chiefly as Monteverdi's teacher (the relationship between the two is poorly documented). "Vaghi boschetti" is a setting of a stanza from Canto VI of Ariosto’s epic poem Orlando Furioso, at which point the heroic knight Ruggiero, borne by a hippogriff – a mythical creature familiar to Harry Potter fans – has just alighted on a far-off island paradise abounding in all manner of tropical delights. See also the settings by Pallavicino and Wert.

Cantan fra i rami gl'augelletti vaghi (SATTB)
The lyrical description of nature makes this appealing setting of an Orlando furioso text almost a companion piece to "Vaghi boschetti" (although the only common plot feature is that a hippogriff again provides the mode of transportation, here to assist the hero Astolfo in recovering Orlando's lost wits).

Dolorosi martir, fieri tormenti (SATTB)
Ingegneri's formidable setting of this despairing cri de coeur is queasily ambiguous in terms of its modal structure (the first definitive cadence occurs at bar 21, a third of the way through the piece). Marenzio's better-known version (q.v.), published shortly after Ingegneri's, shows the latter's influence. The text was also set by Luzzaschi and Gesualdo.

Qual vide il sol giammai (SATTB) *NEW*
Having formed an indissoluble bond with Mr. Right, the protagonist counts herself the luckiest woman alive.
