Amo is probably the first word that anybody learning Latin learns and which translates into that universal 3-word sentence used by all and sundry: I love you. Well it is easy to fall in love with this composition and just as easy to fall in love with the beautiful charmer shown on the cover of the original sheet music. The intermezzo itself is a lively affair in the rondo form of ABBACCA with a 17-bar introduction and an 8-bar coda. Great demands are made on the treble player as the upper limits of his or her instrument are called upon - should the result be too squeaky then a possible solution would be to alternate to descant or even sopranino for the difficult passages.
Amo was published by Maurice Shapiro Music Publisher, New York, USA, also as a song.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
