La Fiera de Mast’Andrea ("Mast’Andrea fair") is a lively Neapolitan folk song, published in 1845 by Girard & Co. and also found in the collection Florimo da camera and Vincenzo De Meglio's collection, Eco di Napoli, in a lively tarantella rhythm.

The structure of the piece, of great strength and narrative liveliness, falls within the tradition of the so-called "cumulative" songs, present in various regions of Italy, in which each strophe has added the elements listed in the previous stanzas, up to a long tongue twister. The text lists the purchase of a series of musical instruments (bells, tambourine, violin and the traditional calascione) and some weapons (rifle, cannon, and pistol), whose sound is reproduced onomatopoeically in the song, like a nursery rhyme, with the imitations of instruments: the bell, the tambourine, then the violin, the calascione, etc.

SATB, divisi, a cappella - 11 pages - Duration time: 4'00 ca.
