Sempre caro mi fu

A polyphonic composition for a cappella choir SATB that enhances the reflective depth and expressive power of “L’infinito” by Leopardi, one of the greatest masterpieces of Italian poetry. A balanced music, calm and reflective, but at the same time very expressive, able to immerse the listener in suspended soundscapes of great charm.

  • A modern and contemporary music, accessible to the general public, without sacrificing compositional research, polyphonic and harmonic richness and technical experimentation, without being too demanding for choristers.
  • The author, the Belgian Daniel Burdet, is also chorus director of decades of experience and therefore his writing takes into account the potential, the limits and the technique of the voices of a choir.
  • Wide and airy layout, which facilitates the reading of the staff and the sung text.


For choristers, only the MP167P score is available on request, without cover and without the introductory notes, essential for live performances, at a cost of € 8.00 for orders not less than 12 copies. Write to
