Vergine Bella


Vergine Bella is a transcription of a vocal original, in this case a devotional madrigal, or ‘lauda’, by the Mantuan composer Bartolomeo Tromboncino. The restrained divisions leave intact the polyphony and the form of the original with its closing ‘Amen’.

Transcription d’un original vocal, Vergine Bella reprend un madrigal dévotionnel (ou «lauda») du compositeur mantouan Bartolomeo Tromboncino et parvient, avec ses divisions tout en retenue, à préserver la polyphonie et la forme originelles, y compris l’«Amen» conclusif.

Vergine Bella ist eine Transkription eines ursprünglich für Gesang bestimmten Stücks – in diesem Fall eines Erbauungsmadrigals („lauda“) des mantuanischen Komponisten Bartolomeo Tromboncino. Die gemäßigten Diminutionen lassen die Polyphonie und die Form der Vorlage mit ihrem abschließenden „Amen“ intakt.
