Description: Using stile recitativo, rappresentativo and arioso to suit his texts and dramatic needs, Carissimi produces an urgent and tonally picturesque work which does justice to its subject. The Dixit and Magnificat (also available only here on CD) are examples of his older, conservative style which he used for works intended for church services. Latin texts. Capella Angelica, Lautten Compagney; Wolfgang Katschner. SACD hybrid
