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?
About Barbara Strozzi 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.
About the arranger Olivia Sparkhall studied composition at Durham University with Paul Archbold, composing for the Northern Sinfonietta and Flower Quartet as part of her studies. Since moving to South West England, she has focused primarily on writing vocal music, notably for BBC One’s Songs of Praise programme. Recent commissions have been for International Women’s Day services in 2018 (Lux Aeterna) and 2019 (Faith and Hope). She was short-listed in the Cappella Nova competition in 2018 for Dona Nobis Pacem. Gabriel’s Message (2018) received its premiere (in the version with piano accompaniment) in Southwark Cathedral and (in the version with harp accompaniment) in Salisbury Cathedral. She is currently working on a large-scale commission.
