Navigation etc.

Though RISM, in 2 different entries, says this madrigal has multiple parts, the 1560 collection (linked above) does not say "2a pars" etc, next to the consecutive parts, and treats them as separate madrigals, though the subtitle of the collection says "dove si contengono le vergini", in other words it contains "the virgins". This indicates that Bassani at least saw them as a group, if not one work. The other "Vergini" are:
2a pars. Vergine saggia & del bel numer’una
3a pars. Vergine pura d’ogni part’intera
4a pars. Vergine santa d’ogni gratia piena
5a pars. Vergine sol’al mondo senz’essempio
6a pars. Vergine chiara & stabil in eterno
7a pars. Vergine quante lagrim’ho già sparse
8a pars. Vergine tal’è terra e post’ha in doglia
9a pars. Vergine in cui ho tutta mia speranza
10a pars. Vergine humana & nemica d’orgoglio
RISM also adds the following as an 11th part:
11a pars. Il di s’appressa et non puot’esser lunge
