Notes and Editorial Reviews

The sixth release in the Rediscoveries series from Virgin Classics Andrew Parrott’s landmark recording of La Pellegrina - Music for the Wedding of Ferdinando De Medici and Christine de Lorraine. The wedding of Ferdinando de Medici to Christine de Lorraine was a spectacular Florentine affair. The extravagant wedding featured a performance of Girolamo Bargagli’s comedy La Pellegrina, which is remembered today not for its drama but for the six musical interludes (intermedi) that accompanied it. The six intermedi were something to behold; their enormous sets and grand compositions offering a stunning experience. This recording features Andrew Parrott and the Tavener Consort, Choir and Players and is considered a valuable addition to the Read more collection of any early music fan. Read less
