Notes & Reviews:

Although Alessandro Melani's (1639-1703) significance as a composer of operas and sacred oratorios before Alessandro Scarlatti was recognized quite early, his numerous sacred compositions have remained largely unknown. Church music was his domain, yet he regularly wrote operas that brought him fame. All his Vespers compositions have a festive character and were probably performed at one of Rome's finely endowed churches. Soloists of the Rheinische Kantorei interpret the Vespers of the Blessed Virgin together with the Kleines Konzert under Hermann Max.
