Che si può fare? Barbara Strozzi, arranged for SSA and piano by Olivia Sparkhall.

Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677) was a prolific publisher of her songs.
This one comes from her Opus 8 collection, published in 1664.
In the 17th century, it was unusual for a composer to publish so
much; that Strozzi did so resulted in considerable public recognition
for her. It has also ensured her legacy, latterly, as some of the original
publications are freely available. Che si può fare? exists as a notated
melody (albeit in a less recognisable notation) along with the written-out
passacaglia bass line. Nothing else exists and has had to be
constructed afresh.

Che si può fare?

Le stelle ribelle non hanno pietà;

s'el cielo non dà un influsso di pace al mio penare,

Che si può fare?
Che si può dire?

What can be done?
The stars rebel and have no mercy;
If heaven does not give peace to my suffering,
What can be done?
What can be said?
