Information about the piece

Santa Lucia is a traditional Neapolitan song that was transcribed by Teodoro Cottrau and published in 1849. It holds historical significance as it was the first Neapolitan song to be printed and sold in Italy. The title translates to Saint Lucy in English, Saint Lucy being a revered Christian figure and the Patron Saint of the City of Naples. The song paints a picturesque scene of the Bay of Naples under the silver moonlight, capturing the beauty of the local environment.

In the context of musical theory, the melody of Santa Lucia is straightforward yet filled with emotion. The song reveals its charm through simple but expressive harmonies that encapsulate the feeling of longing and the beauty of the Naples night it describes.
