Description

Monteverdi’s third book of madrigals of 1592 is one of the earliest
steps towards the writing of opera as we know it. In this collection of
songs, Monteverdi, for the first time, starts to bring small groups of
songs (2 or 3) to form a ‘Scena” – a collection with similar words or on
a similar theme or by the same poet and keeping them as a little group
within the book of madrigals.

Song number two “O Come e Gran Martire” and is an attempt to persuade a
young lady to dally by proclaiming how much of a martyr he is to hide
his desires!

As with all of Monteverdi’s vocal
music, it translates really well onto instruments. The individual
madrigals are available separately. This flexible arrangement is equally
playable on woodwind ensembles as on brass.

Flexible quintet parts are supplied as follows:

Part 1 in Bb/C (Treble),
Part 2 in Bb/C (Treble),
Part 3 in Eb/F/C (Alto),
Part 4 in Bb/Eb/C (Bass) and
Part 5 in Bb/Eb/C (Bass )
