Subject:        Dialogue Songs In The Renaissance

Colleagues:

I would appreciate any thoughts on the following questions:

Does anyone know of dialogue poems (especially poems in which a male and
female speak to one another) set to music in the Renaissance? If so,
does anyone know examples of how the dialogue was handled when the poem
was sung? For instance, would a male sing the "male" lines and a female
sing the "female" lines?  Would a male singer sing both the "male" and
"female" parts?  If so, would the singer alter his voice at all to
reflect the gender distinctions?

Any thoughts on any of this would be most appreciated.

With many thanks -- Robert C. (Bob) Evans,
