I think I may give it a miss, to be on the safe side; I'm sure from cross reference of the recordings that the notes are as Rossi wrote, Though the structure (placements of Ritornello, segregation of verses by an instrumental ritornello etc) differs, so I simply amalgamated the varying aspects of each structure to create the form which I felt flows best. Recordings by Christie alone differ between 5-9 minutes because of this. Likewise, in the ritornello I wrote the natural breaks between phrases out as rests, while in the verse I've left it to the performer to decide. If anyone's interested in taking a look I can send a copy, but while it would be easy to perform from, it most certainly isn't a scholarly edition.

Many thanks to everyone, I seriously recommend buying a recording/hunting down published scores, as it certainly deserves to be better known

Hello there,

I know it may be a long shot after 9 years, but is there any chance for you to share with me your version of the piece?
I think it is the only way left to study the piece.
