The angel to the shepherds said: I announce to you a great joy: Today the Savior of the World was born.

La Pazzia Senile (Harmonic Comedy) . . . Adriano Banchieri
"A Folly of Old Age" is set in four parts; an introduction by the author precedes the first of three acts. The story in brief:
In Rovigo, a wealthy locality near Venice, lives an old man named Pantalone, who is a merchant from Murano. One day he learns from his servant Burattino that Master Fulvio serenades his daughter Doralice every night with songs which he accompanies upon a lute, and that the couple have long and amorous talks. Con?cerned about his reputation, the good Pantalone departs in great rage to visit Graziano, formerly a doctor in Francolino, and promises his daughter in marriage. The wedding is to take place that very evening.
Doralice, who has overheard everything from her window, sends for Fulvio, her lover, and tells him of the plan her father has made. The couple decide to marry without the old man's knowledge.
The father, Pantalone, moreover, has fallen in love with a courtesan named Lauretta but when he confesses his love she ridicules him and dismisses him. Thus, in the end, the poor, wretched men have been tricked and have gone through all the trouble for nothing.
Sfidi tu forse a baci (Madrigale).....Achille Falcone
You are defying my lips with yours in a war of kisses. Therefore I prepare myself, too, to warfare. To arms! Alas, I have been won by treachery. I thought to be fighting a war of kisses, instead they were kisses filled with poison.
Dimmi Clori gentil (Madrigale)......Leone Leoni
Oh Chlori, listen to the nightingale who is telling his mate on that branch about his love sorrows, singing sweetly in a thousand different ways: "I love you!" And his mate replies, "I love you."
Fillida mia (Madrigale).......Luca Marenzio
My beloved Phyllis, who runs as a reindeer and trembles as a cane in the wind-undo your fair locks to the winds as a reward to your faithful lover.
Cruda Amarilli (Madrigale)........Marenzio
Cruel Amaryllis, your name tells how bitter a feeling love is for you. You are pure and beautiful but you flee from my sighs of love. Listen to the murmur of the winds, of the waters, and of the woods who repeat my laments.
Ch'io t'ami (Terzina).......Claudio Monteverdi
You ask me, cruel one, if I love you Don't ask me, ask these woods which have often heard my laments and have been moved by them.
Deh! bella e cara
Oh you who have been so dear to me once, turn to me your quiet and smiling eyes like at that time, so that I may sweetly die.
Ma tu piii che mai
But you do not feel the spark of pity and I am talking to a dumb stone. Tell me, at least, "Die!" and you will indeed see me die in my agony of pain.
Tiridola non dormire (Serenata).....Orazio Vecchi
Tiridola, do not sleep. Jump from your bed and come to the balcony and listen to my serenade. "My dearest, if I kiss your lips, don't tell your mother. Now, t'is late, let's retire, the bell is ringing, good-bye."
Chorus--Behold the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sin of the world.
Contralto--He was despised and re?jected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.
Tenor--All they that see Him, laugh Him to scorn; they shoot out their lips, and shake their heads, saying:
Chorus--He trusted in God that He would deliver Him; let Him deliver Him, if He delight in Him.
Tenor--Thy rebuke hath broken His heart; He is full of heaviness. He looked for some to have pity on Him, but there was no man, neither found He any to comfort Him.
Behold, and see if there be any sor?row like unto His sorrow.
Soprano--How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
Chorus and Audience--Hallelu?jah! for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.
The kingdom of this world is become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and
Soprano--I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. For now is Christ risen from the dead, the first fruits of them that sleep.
Chorus--Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Bass--Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twin?kling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
The trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Chorus--Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, and hath redeemed us to God by His blood, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. Blessing and honor, glory and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb, forever and ever. Amen.
