Si dolce for guitar quartet

Clive Lane

 

Si dolce e l’tormento

(‘So sweet is the torment in my breast, that I live happily from its cruel beauty’)

 by Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) from: Quarto scherzo della ariose vaghezze (Venice:1624)

Originally a song with guitar accompaniment, here arranged for guitar quartet with three variations.
