Luigi Rossi (1598-1653): Oratorio per la Settimana Santa / Les Arts Florissants, William Christie

Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Rossi's Oratorio per la Settimana Santa is a masterpiece of the period. Its unusual representation of the Crucifixion draws on elements of both the Passion and the Stabat mater traditions. It also includes an almost operatic scene that vividly depicts a descent into Hades. Its moralistic intent was to move the listener through compassion to repentance. This striking recording from William Christie and the ensemble Les Arts Florissants was originally released in 1989, and is now available again at a special low price.
