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.

The penultimate song, again presents difficulties in arranging for
quintet, however the sixth voice mostly alternates with the others and
so with a bit of jusicious adaptation, a six-voice song becomes a
quintet.

E cosi a poco a poco a sei voci – Our young man has obviously been spurned (yet again) “And so little by little
like a butterfly simpleton I’ll return to the fire in those false eyes”
