Caro mea vere (Ruggiero Giovannelli)

- Edition notes: This edition is offered in the original key for SAAAB, or transposed down a fourth for SATTB. The original is cleffed in chiavette (high clefs). Both pitch and the wide range of essentially equal parts present problems for the two lower inner parts in performance: the range is lightly less uncomfortable for altos than for tenors. The transposition represents the better practical solution. Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score. Please click on the link for preview/playback/PDF download.
