Misc. Notes Because most of my transcriptions are never heard before, I decided to make a simple computer synthesized audio file for hearing control.

Misc. Comments

  • According to Grove Music, "All of [Allegri's] dances can be identified as belonging to entertainments produced at the Medici court between 1608 and 1615, including La notte d'Amore (1608), La serena (1611, reworked as Le ninfe di Senna, 1613), Alta Maria (1614), I Campi Elisi (1614) and L'Iride (1615); each suite consists of dances from a single work."
  • This was written for La Notte d'Amore, a ballo put on for the Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1608.
  • All 8 Ballets, used for Florentine stage works were published in Il Primo Libro delle Musiche, Venice 1618.
  • All 8 Ballets have an optional continuo part. I had intended to go through the primary source and put the original figures on a new set of bass parts but will not be able to do this now. There are several collected editions around on Amazon etc. ranging from 20 to 90 euros! where you can get more information.
