Note: Discussed in this part: Previous shepherd trio heard on B003. "Pizzica" from Taranto -- the cure for the bite of the tarantula. Impoverished Lucania, land of absentee landlords, and disease, with high birth and death rates. Harvest songs, ninna nanas, and funeral laments (their similarities). Lucania's rich folk tradition disclosed by Carpitalla and Martino, who found some of the best versions of medieval ballads there. A thirteenth century ballad about the maid Frondella, who leaves her impotent husband and walks over the mountain to find the castle of her truelove, Count Ruggiero. "La Monachella" ("The False Nun") sung by female chorus. Humorous love song to donkey (with donkey noises). Satiric song of woman trying to marry off her bowlegged son. Stigliano, vocal harmony imitates bagpipes. Saltarello.
