PERTI Messa à 5. Laudate pueri. Dixit Dominus. Magnificat. 3 Sinfonie Paolo Faldi, cond; Bologne Baroque O; Color Temporis TACTUS 661602 (60:22 Text and Translation)


This disc marked the 250th anniversary of Giacomo Antonio Perti (1661–1756), a date that otherwise seems to have gone unnoticed amid the excitement over a birth anniversary that year. He was famous in his time, for he served the great basilica of San Petronio in Bologna, Read more succeeding Colonna, for 60 years after serving at the nearby cathedral of San Pietro for six years. (Thus he exceeded the tenures of Mengelberg, Ansermet, and Fiedler by a decade.) I first noticed him on records with a sonata for four trumpets that Helmut Wobisch included in a series of Bach Guild LPs. More recently Sergio Vartolo, Perti’s distant successor at San Petronio, has devoted four issues (five CDs) to his music (11:4, 16:2, 20:1, 22:1), in addition to a Magnificat in a miscellaneous collection. Flavio Colusso also recorded his oratorio San Petronio , honoring an early fifth-century bishop of the city (not received for review).


Like most of Perti’s masses, this one consists of a Kyrie and Gloria set in movements for solo, ensemble, and choir. The psalm Laudate pueri is only slightly longer than Dixit Dominus , but it is similarly divided into movements, while the latter is given to the choir throughout, as is the Magnificat. The sinfonie , of which he wrote a number, are instrumental introductions to the Mass. Faldi is unknown to me, but he has assembled a fine ensemble that gives the composer his due. The solo and choral singers are well trained and responsive, and the orchestra is more than satisfactory. The extensive note is informative but requires some patience, for the translation is not fluent. This is a worthy tribute on the composer’s anniversary.
