Monteverdi's setting, an evocative description of a sunrise, expresses perfectly the text, because the music, like the text, moves literally from darkness to bright sunlight. There are essentially three sections: the quiet before the dawn; changes as they are taking place; the celebration of the arrival of the dawn.
