Description: Made in 1993, these are the first recordings in situ (the Basilica of San Petronio in Bologna) of these compositions. Only the original versions of all the authentic and signed manuscript pieces were considered for the recording. One of the main purposes of this recording was to reconstruct the acoustic effects of these compositions in the Basilica, respecting the original arrangement of the musicians in the cantoria around 1700. With the few iconographical documents and the original partbooks of the compositions it was possible to reconstruct accurately the authentic instrumentation and placement of the musicians in the choir. 3 CDs for the price of 2. Per-Olof Lindeke, David Staff, Edward Tarr, Gabriele Cassone (trumpets), Orchestra della Cappella Musicale di San Petronio; Sergio Vartolo.
