Monodies of Il primo libro delle musiche

[1] Ardo infelice, e
palesar non tento
[2] Io mi distruggo, et ardo
[3] Lasciatemi
qui solo
[4] Io veggio i campi verdeggiar fecondi
[5] La
pastorella mia tra i fiori, è 'l giglio
[6] Rendi alle mie speranze il
verde, e i fiori
[7] Dov'io credea le mie speranze vere
[8] S'io
men vò, morirò
[9] Non sò se quel sorriso
[10] Chi desia di
saper che cosa è Amore
[11] Che t'ho fatt'io?
[12] O vive
rose
[13] Se muove a giurar fede
[14] Ch'Amor sia nudo, e pur
con l'ali al tergo
[15] Fresche aurette
[16] Dispiegate

[17] O chiome belle

    Much more fun

    My hunger games is much more fun than this one. Im not saying leave this one, you can do both, but my hunger games has more from the book than this one. Like stylists. In fact, we are going to have a parade of tributes and the stylists are working on design ideas. We also have houses like the book had floors of the place where they lived during training. There are many training rooms, like a training room to educate you on where to hide in the jungle, what type of berries are poisoinus are not, and even camofladge training. We also have many rooms that are open for alliances to chat. Just search hip and click the first book.
