Flexi Quintet – Monteverdi, 5th Book of Madrigals (1605) – 12. Che dar piu vi poss’io
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
The twelfth madrigal, Che dar più vi poss’io, is a song about a young
man offering his companion his heart (with the implication of other
bodily parts) as an expression of love (lust).
