Music from northern Italy

It is a beautiful spring day today. I thought I would put some springtime music here. I first heard La Bergamasca or Il Giardino Armorico by Uccellini on an Air Canada flight back to Québec, about ten years ago and I loved it so much that I wrote down on a piece of paper the title of the tune. Strangely, it is not a song but a dance. This music puts me in an Italian mind. I learned years later that a bergamasca is a dance that is originally from Bergamo. I have not seen much of Italy, only the north really, but Bergamo has been so far my favourite city there. This is where one of my best friends is from and where I would love to live. So La Bergamasca I now have a special place in my heart.
