Notes & Reviews:

The works of Alessandro Stradella (1639-82) form a bridge between the music of late Renaissance southern Europe and early Enlightenment northern Europe. Stradella wrote in all available genres, including, of particular importance here, the serenata, or love-song. "Qual prodigio" is essentially a dispute between two male lovers and a lady about the best way of winning a lady's heart, with comic flavor. "Lasciate ch'io respiri, ombre gradite" is a pastoral dialogue between an Arcadian shepherd and his nymph. The instrumental Sonata for 8 Strings, Trumpet and Bass Continuo lies between.

The singers are quite good and pleasing and ably used ones. The instrumental work by an ensemble of 16 period-instrument players is of high quality. And the recorded sound is exemplary. The booklet contains not only extensive notes, but full Italian texts with English translation. If you have still to discover the historically and artistically important Stradella, this release would make an admirable starting point.
