This album presents an overview of late-17th-century instrumental music in Bologna, in both da chiesa and de camera styles, composed by contemporaries of Arcangelo Corelli. The evolution from Maurizio Cazzati's Ciaccona provides an excellent example of the extensive mutual influence of the Bolognese masters.

Musica Antiqua Latina, based in Rome, is devoted to the rebirth of the early Italian Baroque repertoire, performing on original instruments at period pitch.

As well as a busy international touring schedule, Musica Antiqua Latina breathes life into original locations, rendering Corelli's Concerti grossi at St Luigi d'Francesci, the church where they were first performed, or Scarlatti's unpublished work at the Oratorio St Giorlamo della Carita.

Sources and manuscripts from major Italian archives are closely examined, decoding hidden rhetorical figures, symbols and patterns, tracing the blend between sacred orthodoxy and theatrical lyricism. Following the initial scholarly groundwork, Musica Antiqua Latina prepares each work by delving into its unique life and background, searching for the mysterious bonds between performer and creator that transcend age, style and language.

Musica Antiqua Latina:
- Paulo Perrone (baroque violin)
- Gabriele Politi (baroque violin)
- Giordano Antonelli (baroque cello, direction)
- Andrea Buccarella (harpsichord, organ)
- Francesco Tomasi (baroque guitar, theorbo)
