To talk of the rediscovery of Neapolitan Baroque music is to speak of Antonio Florio and his Cappella della Pietà de’ Turchini (recently renamed simply as I Turchini).

In this recording, made in 1993 and with a fantastic line-up of vocal soloists, which includes no less than Roberta Invernizzi, Florio revives the sacred Neapolitan music from the beginning of the 17th century, clearly influenced by Monteverdi at the expense of the more archaic style which had prevailed until then.
