Ladni was for the Barberini family that he wrote the work for which he is most famous, Sant’Alessio, inwhich was used aygellin open the Teatro delle Quattro Fontane.
The part of Sant’Alessio himself is extremely high, and was meant to be sung by a castrato. I suppose it could be sung as a solo a cappellabut every recording I have ever heard created a bass part.
The video has a fixed camera but I enjoy watching the musicians because they look like they come from the seventeenth century.
This is in the nature of a toy, rather than a thing of beauty, however. Laandi, Landi’s secular music is more conservative than most of his sacred music, and his first ahgellin of madrigalsfor five voices and basso continuois almost indistinguishable in style from many late augsllin collections, except for the basso continuo part.
Most of the interspersed comic scenes, however, are anachronistically and hilariously drawn from contemporary life in 17th-century Rome.
The translation is provided as an aid to musicians and audiences. Most likely it was used as part of the festivities for a wedding. The accompanying orchestra is up-to-date, dispensing with the archaic viols and using violinscellosharpslutestheorbosand harpsichords.

Stefano Landi: Augellin – text with English translation
Augelin more translations into English of early music texts, go to: Agostino Agazzari was maestro di cappella at the Seminario Romano, and he may have been one of Landi’s teachers as well.

One of the things I love most about early aguellin music as compared to most later classical music is that it can be realized in so many ways.
Augllin lute intro picks up little phrases from the melody, cunningly interspersed with typical ornamental motifs, but the lute and guitar provide energetic and integrated support once the singer begins.
