MARIA CRISTINA KIEHR 'Canta la Maddalena'

£8.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

NEW and sealed. 2008.

Works by Italian composers Giovanni-Battista Agneletti (c. 1656–1673), Luigi Rossi (c. 1597-1653), Girolamo Alessandro Frescobaldi (1583-1643), Michelangelo Rossi (Michel Angelo del Violino) (ca. 1601/1602-1656), Bonifatio Gratiani (1604/05 - 1664), Domenico Mazzocchi (1592-1665), Giovanni-Girolamo Kapsperger (c. 1580-1651), Ercole Bernabei (1622-1687) and Benedetto Ferrari (ca. 1603-1681) are performed by soprano Maria Christina Kiehr and the Concerto Soave (directed by Jean-Marc Aymes).

The theme of the deploration represents one of the keystones of the Italian baroque revolution in the first half of the 17th century. These 'lamenti' constituted the ideal framework for putting into practice the latest discoveries in expressive solo singing. Freed from the subtleties of counterpoint, it was now able to communicate the emotion expressed in the words directly to the listener. In this respect sacred music was not far behind and it is easy to understand why the plaints of Mary Magdalene at the foot of the Cross were so abundant, especially in Rome where religious music had always occupied a more important position than elsewhere. The solo motets of Rossi, Agneletti, Mazzocchi and Frescobaldi bear dazzling witness to this specifically Roman musical activity.

TRACK LISTING: Gloria (Agneletti) -- Pender non prima vide sopra vil tronco (Pianto della Maddalena) (Luigi Rossi) -- Dove, dove sparir, sonetto spirituale -- Toccata per l'arpa. Canzon -- A piè della gran Croce (Frescobaldi) -- Toccata Settima per clavicembalo (Michelangelo Rossi) -- Dominus illuminatio mea (Gratiani) -- Dunque ove tu Signor -- Lagrime Amare -- Homai le luci erranti (Mazzocchi) -- Toccata per liuto (Kapsperger) -- Heu me miseram et infelicem (Bernabei) -- Queste pungenti spine (Ferrari).
