Notes & Reviews:

Alessandro Scarlatti composed his oratorio on the life of Saint Philip Neri in 1705. St Philip had several oratorios written about his life, and what was probably the first example of the form appeared in 1678. Scarlatti's is the most impressive and important work on this subject. It is set to a libretto by Pietro Ottoboni, who was created 'cardinal protector' by Pope Alexander VIII at the age of just 22. Cardinal Ottoboni had a remarkable skill of identifying the greatest musical talents of the time, and those who worked for him included Alessandro Scarlatti's brother Domenico, Corelli, Pasquini and Handel.

Gramophone Magazine
This premiere recording of San Filippo Neri is typical of Velardi's admirable zeal, worthy endeavour, natural pacing and the shapely string playing of his band...The Alessandro Stradella Consort deserves credit for boldly going where no Baroque group has gone before
