Gesualdo: Moro, lasso, al mio duolo
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.'
