Editor: Pothárn Imre (submitted 2024-01-06).   Score information: A4, 3 pages, 83 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transcribed from 1566 Gardano print. At two places we have cancelled the sharp sign before the C, although present in all editions we have consulted. In the Quinto in measure 16 and in the Alto in measure 45. We think that the diminished triad is an error on these two places. Original key (chiavi naturali) and note values.

Madonna poi ch'uccider mi volete,
non niego di morire,
ma se coi dolci sguardi voi potete
la mia vita finire,
egli è pur giusta voglia
ch'io mora di dolcezza e non di doglia.
