Even if there is only one book of madrigals by Vittoria Aleotti - one of the first female composers that saw her work being printed - the music is very pleasant. Vittoria started writing madrigals in 1591 with Di pallide viole which appeared in an anthology. Two years later she set music to poems by Guarini and these madrigals were printed in Venice by one of the great Venetian publishers Giacomo Vincenti, as the Ghirlanda de Madrigali à quatro voci - A Garland of Madrigals for 4 voices. The lyrics are written by Giovanni Battista Guarini, one of the three greatest poets of sonnets and other poems (together with Torquato Tasso and Francesco Pertrarca) that are used in Italian madrigals in the 16th and early 17th century.
Stylistically the madrigals are a little conservative but at the same time youthfully exuberant, considering her age of 18 years! They are for a great deal homophonic and not very intricate, and thus accessible to a wide range of singers, not only high school.
