MusicContinuing our tour through music appreciation with some stops in early opera and the Baroque period. More refining of the aria "Caro Mio Ben" from 24 Italian Songs & Arias (Schirmer's Library of Musical Classics). I'm interested to see that it's now packaged with a CD. I can play "Caro Mio Ben" well enough for us to practice to, but we've been using practice karaoke from YouTube instead, for convenience's sake.
Medium High version that my Daughter likes
Low version for me, since I'm an actual alto
I also found an interesting resource called Art Song Central that has a Caro Mio Ben page. I may have to take their advice and look for a more period setting some day, but for now my goal is to work through the Schirmer book with my daughter.
