Sweet Was The Song

This is one rendition of Girolamo Frescobaldi’s “Se L’Aura Spira,” one of my favorite songs. Its last verse delivers on its promise.

With your song, sweet maidens,
Drive away the winds of cruelty.

Frescobaldi was a notable Italian composer of keyboard music, who lived in the late Renaissance and early Baroque.
