John Walter Hill
Beyond Isomorphism toward a Better Theory of Recitative
Orfeo: Dhe, dhe, se scintillancora from Euridice, speech sound tracing and musical setting by Peri
Alas, alas, if even a spark of that ardor still burns in your breast,
hear, my life, hear the laments and mourning
of your dear Orfeo, from his innermost heart
Weep at my lament, shades of the Inferno.
