    Ghirlanda de Madrigali

    Presented by at Episcopal Parish of the Messiah - Newton

    October 29, 2011


    Ghirlanda de Madrigali

    18 wonderful works by Vittoria Aleotti, an innovative early Italian Baroque composer and one of the least well known. Aleotti had a musical childhood, including two years of lessons at the Convent of San Vito, before she decided to take vows as a nun at that convent. On seeing the progress she was making in music theory, her father obtained madrigal texts by the court poet Giovanni Battista Guarini for Vittoria to set to music. The resulting secular work is scored for a mixed chorus, and Cappella Clausura adds men for this occasion.
