About

Gramophone Award-winning ensemble Arcangelo (in their first recording as a vocal and instrumental group) presents a selection from Monteverdiís last three books of madrigals. These ardent and passionate works are microcosms of Monteverdiís great operas, and among his most celebrated music.

Most of the madrigals of Book 6 (1614) are songs of parting and loss. Book 7 (1619) is entitled 'Concerto', meaning that all the works it contains require instrumental accompaniment. And Book 8 (1638) introduces the genere concitato - the Ďagitatedí manner that Monteverdi devised to convey the emotions of war, whether physical or psychological.

Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda sets an extended passage from Tassoís epic poem 'Gerusalemme liberata'. Tassoís text, set in the time of the first crusade, tells of the combat between the Christian knight Tancredi and the Saracen maiden Clorinda. Most of the action of the Combattimento is conveyed by a narrator (Testo - the text), sung here by celebrated tenor James Gilchrist.
