The melodies of The Pilgrim Woman’s interludes must had been like winds of change in Florence in 1589. They were played for the sumptuous wedding of Ferdinando I de’ Medici and Princess Christina of Lorraine. The most famous composers of that time Emilio de Cavalieri, Cristofano Malvezzi, Luca Marenzio, Guilio Caccini and Jacopo Peri worked together to compose the several aspects of these six interludes. Each is more surprising and incredible than the next. Luca Marenzio composed the melodies of the interludes 2 and 3 for three to 18 voices. “O mille volte” is a happy conclusion to the last interlude and Apollo kills the monster in Delphi.
