Gesualdo: Moro, lasso, al mio duolo

July 14, 2017


[Vocal Saturday]


More Gesualdo! Here is another fine example of his mind-blowing harmonic language. 'Moro, lasso, al mio duolo' from his 6th book of madrigals. Look no further than the first two bars: C# major -> A minor...!


'I die, alas, in my suffering,

And she who could give me life,

Alas, kills me and will not help me.


O sorrowful fate,

She who could give me life,

Alas, gives me death.'
