Description

The Fifth book of madrigals starts to see much more development towards
operatic style writing, with more songs being strung together to form
scenas and with the addition of accompaniment on instruments. Some of
these songs can be written by incorporating the accompaniment into the
parts for those instruments which are resting, some will require more
than a quintet. Certainly as we get into the next three books, reduction
to a quintet will become increasingly more difficult, if not
impossible.

Cruda Amarilli is a very evocative song, describing
the cruelty sometimes inflicted upon each other by lovers. “Cruel
Amarillis” is the translation of the first line and the fp in each
part’s entry emphasises that cruelty, along with the increased use of
dissonance.
