After several enquiries, I have decided to arrange and upload this version of Ninna Nanna with the original text. Orazio Michi (1594-1641), known as ’dell’arpa’, was a virtuoso harpist and composer of songs. For a further note on this piece, please see my uploaded English version of Ninna Nanna on this site. I have included verses 1,2 and 7 (final) of the original, which is somewhat long with the chorus as well. The other stanzas are: v. 3 Dormi figlio, e vien’a gl’anni/C’io ti cresco tra gl’affani/Or ch’e tempo di dormire/Verra il tempo di morire/Tra tormenti, pene e noia, Dormi gioia. V. 4 Quelle tempie si divine/Passeran pungenti spine/Or le posa a questo petto?Poi la croce avrai per letto/Dormi e lascia il pianto amaro, Dormi caro. V. 5 Quella fronte ch’ora langue/sudera nel rosso sangue/Quei piedini in novi modi/passeran spuntati chiodi/Questo duol mi passa il cuore, Dormi amore. V. 6 Ecco figlio la mammella/Qual ti piace, questa o quella/Succhia amore il sangue mio/Che l’ha fatto buono Dio/Per far lieto chi ha penato, Dormi amato.

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.
