“A Royal Trio” = Works of Handel, Ariosti & Bononcini for countertenor – Lawrence Zazzo/ La Nuova Musica – Harmonia mundi
It’s a countertenor, not a castrato, but Zazzo show us how far along the genre has come.
“Sacrifices” = CHARPENTIER: Peter’s denial of Christ; Abraham’s Sacrifice; CARISSIMI: Jephtha; DE BROSSARD: Symphonies pour le Graduel; Sonate en trio – La Nuova Musica/ David Bates – Harmonia mundi
A tribute to two composers often overlooked, with some seasoning from a copyist!
VIVALDI: Dixit Dominus; In furore iustissimae irae; HANDEL: Dixit Dominus; – Lucy Crowe, sop./ La Nuova Musica/ David Bates – Harmonia mundi
Two great Dixits, sung and played with fervor.
