Ancidetemi pur


Ancidetemi pur is a virtuoso transcription of a plain four-part madrigal by Arcadelt. The original lines are scarcely recognizable beneath Trabaci’s ornaments and divisions, with scales, trills and echoes just as described by Agazzari.

from notes by Andrew Lawrence-King © 1987

Transcription virtuose d’un madrigal simple, à quatre parties, d’Arcadelt, Ancidetemi pur masque presque entièrement les lignes originales sous les ornements et les divisions de Trabaci, dont les gammes, les trilles et les échos sont conformes aux descriptions d’Agazzari.

Ancidetemi pur ist die virtuose Transkription eines schlichten vierstimmigen Madrigals von Arcadelt. Die Originalstimmen sind unter Trabacis Verzierungen und Diminutionen mit ihren Skalen, Trillern und Echos (ganz im Sinne von Agazzari) kaum noch zu erkennen.
