About

The untimely death of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi at age 26 robbed the musical world of one of the greatest talents of the 18th century. During his short life, Pergolesi was a prolific composer - he wrote a lot more than his immortal Stabat Mater, deservedly one of the most popular and best known sacred works of the Baroque.

This new recording presents two first recordings of Cantatas, on secular texts for vocal soloists and instrumental ensemble - works of deep emotion and profundity, and worthy companions to the Stabat Mater.

Musica Perduta is a cultural organisation delving deep into historical archives, unearthing unpublished works by the Italian masters of the 17th and 18th century.

The booklet contains liner notes and the complete sung texts.
