Notes & Reviews:

Singers and instrumentalists join forces for this recording of The Bach Sinfonia and Sinfonia Voci’s performance of Biber’s Stabat Mater, a work music director Daniel Abraham prepared from the original manuscripts for the modern concert premiere in May 2008. In addition, this recording offers the rare opportunity to explore six of Rossi’s radiant polyphonic Hebrew settings from Hashirim asher lish’lomo (1623), and Carissimi’s beautiful oratorio Historia di Jepthe, the first true masterwork in the genre. The dramatic musical imagery of this oratorio unfolds amid stunning solo passages and some of the most stirring choruses in all of the Baroque era.
