  • The basso part come from the Arcadelt madrigal of the same name, while the canto and tenore parts provide an elaborate, fast fantasia on top of it.
  • Grove Music describes Ruffo's 1564 collection of capricci as: "textless compositions apparently intended for instrumental performance, are studded with technical and notational difficulties, and are the earliest known instrumental pieces to be described as ‘capricci’."
