from the Chilesotti ms. (late 16th century)

Based on text from 'Orlando furioso' by Ludovico Ariosto (1474 – 1533), this later 16th century instrumental setting of an anonymous villanella is from a manuscript that was transcribed by Italian musicologist, Oscar Chilesotti, and published in 1890. Chilesotti's transcriptions were later orchestrated by Ottorino Respighi in his three suites titled 'Ancient Airs & Dances'.
