Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the première recording of Alessandro Grandi’s complete arias for solo voice from his third volume of 1626, performed here by tenor Bud Roach as they would have been commonly heard at the time of their publication: with the singer accompanying himself on the baroque guitar. A contemporary of Claudio Monteverdi, Grandi found his greatest success with cantatas and arias for solo voice. These secular songs were among the most popular in Venice throughout the third decade of the 17th century, and are considered to represent the apogee of the genre. Like many of the song collections published by Vincenti, this volume includes “alfabeto” notation for the strummed Spanish guitar. - Musica Omnia This is the première recording of Alessandro Grandi’s complete arias for solo voice from his third volume of 1626, performed here by tenor Bud Roach as they would have been commonly heard at the time of their publication: with the singer accompanying himself on the baroque guitar.

Sound Samples

Troppo fedele
Deh, vaga mia Clori
E si grave 'l tormento
Consenti pur e ti pieghi
Ninfa crudele
Ridete meco, amanti
Non puo ferir
Quand'amor dentr'un cor
Sotto aspetto ridente
Amore, io piu non ardo
Empio cor, piu non ti credo
Gioite, danzate
Lontan del tuo bel volto
I nostri voti
Mai piu duro
Rompi, mio core
Al seren del tuo volto
Io non vo pianger piu
Superbetta, sei
Crud'e proterva nemica
Folle chi crede
Sprezzami, bionda
Brev'e la vita
