A setting of Cammarano’s text (listed below). Ideally, the performance should grow from the quiet despair of the character (Ines de Castro) to full on rage.

The story is taken from Cammarno’s libretto for the opera "Ines de Castro". In Act Two, the King of Portugal has imprisoned despised Ines de Castro, mother of his son’s two children. In a poignant romanza Ines, alone in her cell, reflects back on the carefree days of her youth, faded all to soon.

"Cari giorni a me sereni d’innocenza e di virtu, Foste brevi, siete spenti, ne a brillar tornate piu. Nel dolor e scorsa intera la pri’mora delleta, Mia giornata innanzi sera nel dolor tramontera. Cari giorni a me sereni d’innocenza e di virtu, Foste brevi, siete spenti, ne a brillar tornate piu."

Cherished, peaceful days of innocence and virtue, Fleeting were you, and over now, you will never shine again. My youthful days are all submerged in sorrow, My day will fade into despair before nightfall. Cherished, peaceful days of innocence and virtue, Fleeting were you, and over now, you will never shine again.

A piano reduction is available alongside the ’cello and harp parts.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
