This release features a collection of songs by composer Sisizmondo D India. D India, during his lifetime wrote madrigals and sacred music, but his most famous works are airs and laments for solo voice which are of a unique poetry. Each of these songs is rich in expressiveness, their big melodies drawing the listener s attention and marking D India as a formitable composer of his day. Also included are instrumental solo pieces of some of D India s contemporary composers, Carlo Calvi, Girolamo Kapsberger, and Alessandro Piccinini. Soprano Claudine Anselme s singing is full of emotion, and both she and her lutist partner Paolo Cherici are experts of this music period. This is a rich recording, full of late-Renaissance and early-Baroque gems.
