I have strong “performer’s envy” – all too often I’ll fall in love with a piece, and regret that I’ll never be able to perform it, simply because I don’t sing or play any instrument that the piece requires. Such was the case with this madrigal by Marenzio, which I’ve loved from first hearing. If I couldn’t “make the piece mine” by performing it, I figured I would do so by arranging it – that way, I could get to know it intimately and then still offer a personal interpretation of it, albeit with some abstraction.
