These four songs describe the pangs of thwarted romantic love: torment, desire, and longing. (The third may be the world's only love song declaring envy of a flea--including hopping rhythms.) These songs include a wide range of Renaissance musical devices, including imitation, cadential suspensions, metric changes, and dance-like rhythms. Since they are short and strophic, they give your singers multiple chances of mastering idioms of Renaissance polyphony on a small scale. 1. Il mio martir (My torment) SSA a cappella; duration: 1’40” x 4; range: g-g”; difficulty: medium. 2. Son quest’I crespi crini (These are the curly locks) SSA a cappella; duration: 0’56” x 4; range: f sharp - g”; difficulty: medium. 3. Godi pur del bel sen (Delight in the beautiful bosom) SSA a cappella; duration: 1’00” x 4; range: g-g”; difficulty: medium. 4.
