Label: Pan Classics
Reference: PC 10357
Description: These motets from 1704-06, are unique in the Bolognese tradition: on the one hand by the requirement of a cornett as a concertato instrument, on the other by the fusion of melodramatically inspired tone richness with the tradition of church music and strict counterpoint. Perti uses a complex range of styles that create a unique form for these motets. Latin texts. Basler Madrigalisten, Musica Fiorita; Daniela Dolci (organ).
