Scherza Amarilli a Clori (Mathie) [303.00 or 222.00]
Renaissance. Scherza Amarilli e Clori was written in 1600 for the wedding of Gabrieli's close friend Georg Gruber, a Tuscan nobleman. It was originally scored for a chorus of six voices: two sopranos, alto, tenor, baritone and bass voices. Unlike many ofhis works that were written for performance in Italy's St. Mark's Cathedral, this piece is not antiphonal in nature. This transcription was taken from the complete works (Giovani Gabrieli Opera Omnia, Volume XII: Madrigalia, edited by Denis Arnold, American Institute of Musicology, Hänssler-Verlag, 1974). Editorial additions have been kept to a minimum: the slurs were taken from the text, while the dynamics are suggested by both the text and texture of the music. Musical interpretations should bearin mind that the work is vocal in nature. -the publisher
