Introduzione
Qual si puo dir
Canzonette d'amore
La fiera vista
Raggi dov'e il mio bene
Vita de l'alma mia
Il mio martir
Son questi i crespi crini
Io mi vivea
Su su su che'l giorno
Quando sperai
Come faro cuor mio
Corse a la morte
Tu ridi sempre mai
Chi vuol veder
Gia me credea
Godi pur del bel sen
Giu li aquel petto
Si come crescon
Io son Fenice
Chi vuol veder
Hor care canzonette
