Monteverdi's third book of madrigals of 1592 is one of the earliest steps towards the writing of opera as we know it. In this collection of songs, Monteverdi, for the first time, starts to bring small groups of songs (2 or 3) to form a 'Scena" - a collection with similar words or on a similar theme or by the same poet and keeping them as a little group within the book of madrigals.

As with all of Monteverdi's vocal music, it translates really well onto instruments. The individual madrigals are available separately. This flexible arrangement is equally playable on woodwind ensembles as on brass.

Flexible quintet parts are supplied as follows:

Part 1 in Bb,
Part 2 in Bb,
Part 3 in Bb/Eb/F,
Part 4 in Bb/Eb/C(Bass clef) and
Part 5 in Bb/Eb/C(Bass clef)

Other parts may be requested free of charge.
