About

The cult and devotion to Mary have been among the greatest and most important sources of inspiration for all the arts in the history of humanity, and in the history of music they have given rise to a myriad of compositions that have spanned the centuries since the beginning of Christianity to the present day. Within this record the ensembles Vox Poetica and Nova Alta directed by the master Sabino Manzo offer to us some examples of the most significant Italian composers of the Renaissance and Baroque period, starting from the “divine” Claudio Monteverdi, a milestone in the history of music, up to to Alessandro Scarlatti, a leading exponent of that Neapolitan school that in the eighteenth century exploded in all its shining vitality, passing through Girolamo Frescobaldi, “monster organist” whose fame as a composer and keyboardist went across the Italian borders.
