Claudio Monteverdi, Sì dolce è'l tormento

Arrangements for voice and instruments.
UPDATE 22 November 2010

Two typos remained in the score, now corrected:

pieta => pietà;
haverò => avrò; nb: 'haverò' is, as I am told, an outdated spelling of the futurum of avvere.


I also decided to make versions for lower voice (per voce basso) which could be a tenor or a baritone, and for bass voice (per voce contrabasso), not surpassing the c' limit for performance by those male singers who have real difficulty with really high notes (like me...).
This necessitated changes in the accompaniment. In the instrumental recordings the basso voice is aliased by the dulcian, the contrabasso voice by the trombone.

There now are three versions: 1 for soprano/alto, 1 for tenor/baritone and 1 for basso.
1. Per voce superior (alias oboe), accordion, trombe da tirarsi, theorbo, cornetto and horn in F.
Score:PDF
Sound file: MP3

2. Per voce basso (alias dulcian), accordion, trombe da tirarsi, theorbo, cornetto and horn in F.
Score: PDF
Sound file: MP3

3. Per voce contrabasso (alias trombone), accordion, trombe da tirarsi, theorbo, cornetto and horn in F.
Score: PDF
Sound file: MP3

MIDI files will be uploaded in due course.

NB: all previous versions are now obsolete.
