Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Mass in C minor for 5 voices by Francesco Maria Zuccari is included in this priceless collection and is heard here in its absolute world premiere recording. The piece was first drafted in Assisi in 1723, when Zuccari was Kapellmeister, with a second version with instruments being drafted in 1745, when the musician was first organist at the Santo. The work has, however, presumably not been performed again since that year. The Magnificat in F major also hails from Assisi. It was composed in 1725 and revised later in Padova in 1748. In this recording, the ensemble uses Vallotti’s typical tuning, which favors the use of flats and limits the interval of the fifth, showing a greater precision in the interval of third. The Orchestra Barocca di Read more Cremona, conducted by Giovanni Battista Columbro, performs here on original instruments. Read less
