Di me…


For mixed choir (ca.2’30”) (2005)

In this short miniature for choir, I use a text fragment by Petrarca:

Di me non pianger tu; ché ’miei di fersi,
morendo, eterni, e ne l’interno lume,
quando mostrai de chiuder, gli occhi apersi.


Don’t weep for me, my days, in dying,
became eternal ones, and when the light
within seemed to darken, my eyes opened.
