Went down after reading her letter, and played and sang the Gloria in Excelsis of Pergolesi, with all my soul.
It was a splendid edition, in score, of Pergolesi's "Stabat Mater."
This brilliant genius, Pergolesi, died in 1736, at the age of twenty-six.
Should my line of action with regard to Pergolesi be dominated by my love or by my respect for his music?
(A piano starts playing in the adjoining room—an ancient lune, full of soft and solemn melody; the "Nina" of Pergolesi).
Pergolesi never felt, perhaps, any harmonies but those of his own delicious art.
He belonged to the school of the Adams and Pergolesi, and like them frequently designed the enrichments of furniture.
