Product Description

It was during the Baroque period that the female contralto voice challenged the dominance of the male counter-tenor as the preferred vocal sound in the range between tenor and soprano. This recording, which was a “Gramophone Editor’s Choice” when first released, presents some of the finest pieces written for that voice by, amongst others, Vivaldi, Handel, and Carissimi. They are performed by Sara Mingardo and Concerto Italiano under the direction of Rinaldo Alessandrini.

Carissimi:   ‘Deh, memoria' cantata per alto e continuo
Cavalli:   La Calisto (selected arias)
Handel:   Lungi da me pensier tiranno, HWV 125b - cantata per alto e continuo
Legrenzi:   ‘Costei che in mezzo al volto' cantata per alto e continuo
Merula:   Canzonetta spirituale sopra alla nanna 'Hor ch'è il tempo di dormire'

Vorrei baciarti
Se i languidi miei sguardi 

Salvatore:   ‘Allor che Tirsi udia' cantata per voce e continuo
Vivaldi:   Cantata RV676 'Pianti, sospiri e dimandar mercede'
