Reference: TC 661602
Description: Maestro di capella at St. Petronio in Bologna for 60 (!) years, teacher of, among others, Torelli and G.B. Sammartini, Perti has been quite neglected as a composer. This hour's worth of mass (he only set the Kyrie and Gloria in any of his masses), versettes, psalms and a couple of instrumental "symphonies" is a colorful introduction to him. "Color Temporis" Choir, Silvia Vajente, Pamela Lucciarini (sopranos), Gloria Banditelli (contralto), Vincenzo Di Donato (tenor), Gastone Sarti (bass), Orchestra Barocca di Bologna; Paolo Faldi.
