The Secular Monodies of Il primo libro delle musiche
Ardo infelice, e palesar non tento
Io mi distruggo, et ardo
Lasciatemi qui solo
Io veggio i campi verdeggiar fecondi
La pastorella mia tra i fiori, F 'l giglio
Rendi alle mie speranze il verde, e fiori
Dov'io credea le mie speranze vere
S'io men v=
Non s= se quel sorriso
Chi desia di saper che cosa F amore
Che t'ho fatt'io?
O vive rose
Se muove a giurar fede
Ch'Amor sia nudo, e pur con l'ali al tergo
Fresche aurette
Dispiegate
O chiome belle
