Notes & Reviews:

Early 17th c. Italian motets are the focus of this debut ATMA album by the ¡Sacabuche! Ensemble directed by Canadian trombonist Linda Pearse, recognized specialist in early 17th c. Italy repertoire. In addition to their inherent beauty, these works by lesser-known composers were chosen because they are representative of different musical types. This release represents the culmination of seventeen years of research, publication, performance and pedagogy by the accomplished Ms. Pearse, who, since 1997 has been collecting 17th c. Italian sacred motets with dedicated trombone parts.

Reviews

Trombones thicken the texture
The early baroque practice of doubling voices with trombones is well-known. Although instruments weren't always specified, there were plenty of woodcuts and paintings illustrating the practice. The baroque trombone, or sackbut, had a smaller bore than a modern instrument, but otherwise quite similar.

Scholarship has led to informed performance practices that incorporate trombones into baroque choral music. And that's what makes this new release by Sacabuche! is a little different.

Every work on this release specifically calls for trombones as part of the continuo. And the trombones don't just double the voices. They also serve a continuo role, providing harmonic texture to the moving vocal lines. And sometimes even serve as an additional wordless choir.

This early music sackbut and vocal ensemble knows this repertoire well -- even if the listener doesn't. As their literature says, they perform "the beautiful and lesser-known repertoire for baroque trombones, organ and voice." True on all counts. Francesco Usper, Gasparo Casati, and Stefano Pasino aren't familiar even to many baroque music aficionados -- but they should be. The music on this recording is all well-constructed and tuneful. And impeccably played.
