Description: This little dumpling's career was spent mostly in Brescia and his musical style comes mainly from Venice with homophonic alternating choirs. Only three of these pieces carry dates but, even though two of them are 1750, this remains conservative, late Baroque music in style. Reasonably full notes in Italian but the English note is merely the English Wikipedia article! Coro Claudio Monteverdi, Ensemble Piano & Forte; Bruno Gini.
