GIACOMO CARISSIMI (1602-1674): Oratorio della SS Vergine, Jonas.
Catalogue Number: 09J013
Description: Two historically important examples of the very early period of the oratorio, SS Vergine being unusual in that it is in the vernacular rather than Latin. It is quiet and transparent, exuding the purity of its subject while Jonas is quite dramatic, with a particulary impressive and innovative storm sequence. Italian/Latin texts. Complesso Pro Musica Firenze; Gabriele Micheli (organ).
