Notes & Reviews:

This CD brings to light a completely forgotten composer, the priest Pietro Porfiri from Marche. Of him little is known; the works on this album are taken from a 1692 self-published collection of secular cantatas, just at the time when this kind of music was widespread by publishers all over Europe, particularly Italy. The soprano Pamela Lucciarini and countertenor Alessandro Carmignani bring to light an unexpected musical writing in search of innovative solutions extremely audacious for its time. Laboratorio Armonico, providing basso continuo, features highly skilled early music artists.
