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.

Madrigal 15, Troppo ben puo, describes love as a tyrant whose cruelty
cannot be escaped. This madrigal included a chordal continuo part,
(secco) which has been incorporated into the resting parts for the bass/tenor
line.
