Alessandro Scarlatti is justly famed for his contributions to Read more opera seria and cantata, and indeed it may even be said that he was one of the main progenitors of the Neapolitan style of the early 18th century. In Naples and earlier in Rome he was obligated to write a considerable amount of sacred music, much of it for smaller settings that would be useful in the local churches. Since his music is now becoming more common on disc, it is good to have this recording of a set of four pieces—a gradual, a Marian antiphon, a motet, and a Psalm—all of which reflect rather different approaches to each portion of the liturgy and yet contain a certain commonality in form and structure. Interspersed within these, and no doubt both to provide a transition between then and to fill out the disc, are three organ works, two of which are of substantial length. Given that Scarlatti’s pieces for this instrument are not common, their appearance here is a real treat.
The performances are extremely accurate and, what is more, bring this music to life. Gemma Bertagnolli’s soprano is crisp and clear, and her ornamentation, sometimes difficult and extensive such as the sinuous “Sicut sagite” in the Nisi Dominus, is sharp and focused. Her soprano counterpart, Adriana Fernandez, has a slightly darker tone to her voice, but she too handles the rapid-fire ornaments with skill and ease, for example in the “Eja surgite” of the Mortales non auditis . What is more, both blend well together completely in tune with the running violin lines. Add to this a fabulous pair of contraltos, Sara Mingardo and countertenor Martin Oro, who are equally adept, and you have an absolutely first-rate ensemble. Mingardo’s “Sicut sagittae” in the Nisi Dominus makes it clear where Vivaldi got his notion of the coloratura in his Psalm setting of the same name. Add to this a secure tenor in Furio Zanasi and you have the makings of a first-rate group of voices (basso Antonio Abete is likewise fine but has a limited role as a soloist). Andrea Coen’s registration in the organ works is extremely subtle with nice contrasts and no bombast. As for Concerto de’ Cavalieri, Marcello di Lisa delivers a group that is precise, accurate in terms of pitch, and blends well. His tempos are spot-on, never rushing but always creating an atmosphere that is musical. This allows for this wonderful music to speak for itself.
