Giovanni Bassano (1560-1617)
arranged for solo piccolo with flute choir by
Martha Rearick

It was a customary and respected practice among composers of the late 16th and early 17th centuries to select an existing melody and create an ornamented variation based upon it. The original work in this case was "Vestiva i colli", a five-voice madrigal by the renowned Italian musician Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594)
