This is a lovely arrangement, Paulo! I like your inventive harmonies.
I did a bit of research on this song. It was written in 1885 by Mario Pasquale Costa, who died in 1933.
My apologies, but I found the Bocelli version on YouTube to be a bit too much. I couldn't tell how the song goes!
If members search YouTube for Era de maggio, they'll find a few versions that are simply the song. I liked both of the versions by Roberto Murolo and Raffaella De Simone.
Thank you for introducing me to this heartbreaker!
