Io canterei d'amor si novamente

I was introduced to this piece by Stephan Schrader
sometime in 2001-2001 as a member of his Bremen recorder ensemble. It is a lovely sonorous setting of sonnet CXXXI from the Canzoniere
by Fracesca Petrarca [Petrarch] (1304-1374), the Italian poet who ushered in the Renaissance and who coined the term "Dark Age". There is also a Tenor/Bass
version of this piece.
A notable performance as a bass player and member of the Diepholz Ensemble was given at the Kreismusikschule Diepholz on 8th September 2001.
