All of the vocal chamber music of Francesco Cilea (1866-1950), most of which has remained unpublished until today, has been revised using original autograph manuscripts and printed editions. This collection includes an extended foreword and a detailed explanation of the texts by Giuseppe Filianoti, as well as a commentary on each piece by Francesco Cesari. All of the texts are in Italian and English.
“'Alba Novella,' 'Vita breve,' 'Nel ridestarmi' and 'Canzone dolorosa' are neglected gems worthy of frequent performance. The charming lullaby 'Ninnananna' is one song in the volume that would be suitable for young and developing singers.”–American Music Teacher
