- According to Grove Music, "All of [Allegri's] dances can be identified as belonging to entertainments produced at the Medici court between 1608 and 1615, including La notte d'Amore (1608), La serena (1611, reworked as Le ninfe di Senna, 1613), Alta Maria (1614), I Campi Elisi (1614) and L'Iride (1615); each suite consists of dances from a single work."
- All 8 Ballets, used for Florentine stage works were published in Il Primo Libro delle Musiche, Venice 1618.
