Barbara Strozzi: Sete pur fastidioso

Roommates and lovers (who are sometimes both) are cooped up together these days, occasionally annoyed with one another.  I include a song which may describe something like that by the Venetian singer-songwriter Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677).  She was perhaps the most prolific composer of songs at that time and place.  Many of them remain unpublished. We are fortunate to be discovering them in recent years. Emanuela Galli sings “Sete pur fastidioso”.
