by Philippe Verdelot (c1480 – 1530)

Another reconstruction by Mignarda, Verdelot's six-part madrigal was arranged for solo voice and lute using an instrumental setting by Vincenzo Galilei (c.1520 – 1591), who is mostly known for fathering his more famous son, Galileo. Verdelot’s madrigal creates a very dense texture that can have a marvelous effect but, as is often the case, an all-vocal performance results in an obscured text unless handled with the utmost delicacy. Mignarda's arrangement for solo voice allows the text to be communicated with a clear intent, while taking advantage of the movement and decoration Galilei assigns to the lute.
