This sixteenth century balletti is a wonderful 5-part selection for your madrigal group. It has the usual binary (AABB) form with the “fala- la” refrain at the end of each line. The English translation provided is not literal, but works. The score is clean and not overly edited. This piece is easy, and the kids love it.
