Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Although the output of Gregorio Allegri was not large, it covered almost every musical genre of the time, from strict polyphony to monody, instrumental music and the cantata. He is now remembered principally as the composer of the nine-voice Miserere, written around 1638 for the Holy Week celebrations and made famous in the nineteenth century version which requires a high C in the coro favorito. Five years of bibliographic and musical research in Italy and abroad have permitted the rediscovery of the well-rounded personality that his contemporaries recognized in Allegri, and, from this point of view, quite apart from a world premier recording of exceptional importance, the pieces contained in the Altemps manuscripts undoubtedly constitute a new chapter to add to the history of sacred music.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
Director Fabrizio Bigotti founded the Musica Flexanima Ensemble in 2011, the year this recording was made. Their specialty is Italian vocal and instrumental music of the early 17th Century, with special attention to the music of the Altaemps collection. They are associated with the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome. The vocal ensemble is small, giving the impression of chamber music suited for a private chapel. The technical standard is high.
