In early Baroque Italy the unique capacity of the bass voice is discovered and exploited as pieces appear with astounding ranges which demand agility and control. Inspired by the great 16th century musicians like Giulio Caccini, Andrea Falconieri and Giovanni Puliasch, Joel Frederiksen recreates the performance ideal by accompanying himself on the archlute (which combines attributes of the lute and harp). Music by Stefano Landi, Sigismondo D’India, Andrea Falconieri, and Claudio Monteverdi are also included in this CD, which breathes life into an incredibly energetic and dynamic age right at the turn of the 17th century.
