About

Davide Perez was born in Naples in 1711. His Mattutino de’ Morti is a true masterpiece, placed at the very heart of the project devoted to the rediscovery of the 18th-century Italian sacred repertoire by the Centro di Musica Antica della Fondazione Ghislieri.

Composed and performed for the first time in 1770, it was associated to the pilgrimage to Nossa Senhora do Cabo - a sanctuary constructed in 1701 at Cabo Espichel, on the site of an apparition of the Virgin Mary. The piece, written for five soloists, choir and orchestra, makes a fine use of the stile concertato, distributing the liturgical text in contrasting movements. The perfect rhetorical expression is conveyed through some elaborate and intimate vocal sections, in which the influence of opera tradition, alternating with choral sections of astonishing power, is clear.

An important rediscovery from the 18th-century sacred music repertoire, this piece forms part of the core repertoire of the Coro e Orchestra Ghislieri and their charismatic conductor Giulio Prandi.
