Notes & Reviews:

Francesco Provenzale (1624-1704) was a key figure in Italian music, standing squarely between Monteverdi and Scarlatti and fi`lling an important in the development of the Neapolitan style. His Missa defunctorum (Requiem mass) was likely composed on the death of Phillip IV of Spain in 1666. Its conservative style must have seemed archaic to listeners in 1666, reminiscent of the music of the great Flemish composers of the early Renaissance. This disc features performances by Antonio Florio and the Cappella de'Turchini.
