Description: Polyphonic music in the stile antico by three members of the Scarlatti family with the lion's share falling to the keyboard genius. Dominico shows in his mass that he can weave dense webs of vocal polyphony with the best of prececding generations and he even adds some baroque elements to spice up the Magnificat. Uncle Francesco's 25-minute psalm setting contains some irrepressible elements of southern Italian vitality in addition to its traditional virtues. Ex Tempore; Florian Heyrick.
