Notes & Reviews:

The small-scale motet was at the heart of daily and weekly musical practice in the Roman Catholic Church of the mid-seventeenth century. On eof the genre's most distinguished exponents was the maestro di cappella in the Jesuit Church in Rome, Bonifazio Graziani. An ordained priest, he was commissioned by Pope Innocent X to compose solemn music for the "most holy year" of 1650, and his works were in demand across Europe. His elegant mixture of text, melody, and harmonic accompaniment is highly distinctive, with the two oratorios revealing the extent of his compositional breadth.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
I am glad to hear these pieces. Peter Loewen praised Consortium Carissimi's recording of Carissimi motets (Naxos 555076, J/F 2002) and I liked many things about their recording of the same composer's Jepthe and Jonas oratorios (Naxos 557390, J/A 2005). First recordings. Notes, bios; texts & translations on the Naxos website.
