Catalogue Number: 03T023
Reference: A 444
Description: This album sheds light on a lesser-known aspect of the great Italian composer, offering a 30-minute masss and 41-minute motet, in their first modern edition and first recording. They show a facet of Pergolesi – his energetic and solemn character – that complements and amplifies the dramatic and introspective moods of his most renowned sacred works. Marlis Petersen (soprano), Marta Fumagalli (alto), Ghisleri Chorus and Orchestra; Giulio Prandi.
