Notes & Reviews:

There are few occasions when a record producer has the great pleasure and honor to present a truly unique artist such as Italian countertenor Flavio Ferri-Benedetti. In his recording debut, we fall in love with his beautiful voice, which is sensual, round, and firm. Flavio is joined in this extraordinary recording by the Ensemble Il Profondo, a group specializing in the interpretation of the basso continuo. They offer a colorful accompaniment: robust, sensitive to every nuance, attentive to detail, and a true a pleasure to the ears. A benchmark in the early music discography!
