Description: Carissimi was essentially responsible for the creation of the genre of the oratorio, taking an historia, or biblical episode, from the Old Testament, and using a range of expressive procedures, transform the narrative into the form of a spiritual play -- a sacred epic in which recitative, ariosos, arias and choruses follow each other without interruption. There's been quite a bit of Carissimi appearing recently on disc but nothing like this! 9 CDs. Texts and extensive liner notes available on-line. Ensemble Seicentonovecento; Flavio Colusso. Original 1996 Musicaimmagine releases.
