My contribution to October’s “Music Passion” is the Italian madrigal Amarilli Mia Bella (Amarilli My Fair One) by Giulio Caccini (1551-1618), sung here so beautifully by mezzo-soprano Marie Kristoffersen.
Guilo Caccini was a late renaissance/ early baroque italian tenor, instrumentalist, and composer who sang at the Medici court and was one of the founders of opera. You can find out more about him at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giulio_Caccini.
If you have a favourite song with the word “ONE” in the title, and would like to listen to some other people’s favourites one-songs, you’re welcome to join in the fun at http://allaboutlemon.com/2013/10/05/october-music-passion-is-one/
