d'India: Io che del ciel (La Virtù)
Forces: soprano & continuo

In four sections, all based on the same continuo line this work forms a kind of prologue to the Quinte Musiche due to its expositional style, high-flown language and the fact that is being sung by Virtue. Very florid writing and it is also very beautiful with a rather unexpected ending.
