The passages are “Consecrated to the inimitable Merit of the Most Ill. Lady D. Antonia Francesca Clerici. Nun in the Monastery of Santa Redegonda in Milan “and in the introductory dedication states that” If V.S. Illustriss. he will welcome my vows […], I will see my shadows shining with splendor of glory and resonating in my dissonances the most resonant harmonies of Heaven; while it is truly a Heaven of gratitude, of virtue, of perfections ”.
