6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Giordano Bruno on September 23, 2008
Format: Paperback
Here are the madrigals of Monteverdi's Ottavo Libro (Book 8) in modern notation with text underlay, plus various commentaries. This is not a faultless edition of the sort that a top notch recording ensemble could rely on, but if you can read music, you might find that it enhances your pleasure in listening to any of the three splendid recordings of these madrigals what I've reviewed elsewhere:
La Venexiana - Book 8 complete on 3 disks
Concerto Italiano - complete
The Consort of Musicke - excellent but not complete
And if you can sing, and have friends who also can sing, hey, give it a try!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jasper Tamespeke on May 12, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book is expensive but well worth the money. It is based on the Malipiero Edition, although extensively edited, and has all of 22 the madrigals in Book VIII, the 9 Canti Guerrieri (Songs of War) and 13 Canti Amorosi (Songs of Love).

I am not a performer so I can't comment on its usefulness in that context, but if like me you want to follow the score when listening to the music this is ideal. The production values are good, even though it is in paperback, with a good strong binding, so it should withstand many hours of use. There is a footnote with the name of the madrigal on each page so it is easy to find what one is looking for. There are also good (literal) English translations of all the text, alongside the Italian which is helpful, and even the stage directions for the 2 dramatic pieces which were included in the book, `Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda' and' Il Ballo delle Ingrate' are translated.
