Monteverdi/Fulton.

Si ch'io vorrei morire


Yes, I want to die!
Now, with love, I kiss the mouth of my lover.
Ah, dear and sweet kiss,
You give me such a feeling that I may pass on.
Oh my life, on this pale breast!
For pity's sake, love me.
Oh, the mouth, the kiss.
The words return again to say:
Yes, I want to die!


"Si ch'io vorrei morire" is from Claudio Monteverdi's n Quarto Libro deMadrigali a cinque voci (Fourth Book of Madrigals for Five Voices) publishedin 1603. It is written in a style consistent with the choral/vocal music of the highRenaissance, a much different style than one finds in the late books of madrigalsby the same composer.
