Misc. Comments

Vincenzo Galilei's intabulation of Alessandro Striggio's madrigal Fuggi, speme mia, fuggi is the only music survived from the intermedii performed before and between the five acts of a comedy, La Cofonaria presented 1565 during the celebration of the marriage between the Florentine Count Franceso de' Medici and Giovanna d'Austria. In his article, Psyche's Lament, in Words and Music: The Scholar's View, Howard Mayer Brown has reconstructed Striggio's original setting of the madrigal for solo voice accompanied by 4 trombone, 4 viols and a lirone from Galilei's intabulation. This has been possible due to a detailed contemporary description of this theater event by Giovanni Battista Cini, the author of the madrigal lyrics. His description contains all the lyrics from the madrigals of the intermedii as well as details on their instrumentation.
