Constanzo Festa was one of the most prolific composers, but he is still underestimated yet his music enhances every voice. The anonymous poetic texts are based on Francesco Petrarca’s ideas. They are a basis for the musician to set to music these strong and contrasted images of love, death and life. This song is very easy to sing thanks to the melodic flexibility and ranges’ comfort. You should sing it in a softly and lively way.
