Notes & Reviews:

This recording is devoted to the works of a composer about whom we know practically nothing - neither his date of birth nor even his origins. All we do know is that Giorgi held the position of maestro di cappella in San Giovanni Laterano in Rome in 1719, and that he ended his career in Lisbon, dying there in 1762. The discovery of his music was a life-changing experience for young Argentine conductor Leonardo García-Alarcón, music director of Clematis, the Cappella Mediterranea, and the Namur Chamber Choir. A concertante Mass with soloists and instrumental accompaniment forms the centerpiece of this recording, although several motets from Giorgi's immense body of work are also included.
