Description
Their impeccable performances of some of the most sublime vocal music ever written have made the nine-member group La Venexiana two-time Gramophone Award winners in the Baroque Vocal category. Following the success of their Monteverdi, Gesualdo, and Sigismondo recordings, they turned to the courts of Ferrara and Mantua, where Giaches de Wert composed these lovely madrigals on poems of intoxicating beauty from Jerusalem Delivered by Tasso and Il Pastor Fido by Guarini. These selections come from de Wert's 7th, 8th, and 11th Books of Madrigals. He was maestro di cappella at the Mantuan court, and his contrapuntal art greatly influenced Monteverdi. Texts, translations, and background are provided in the substantial booklet.

"Considered the leading musicians of their day, Franco-Flemish composers were preferred over all others for employment by princes and patrons all over Europe. Of their many spheres of ascendancy, Italy was perhaps the most important."—Wisconsin State Journal
