* Required Fields

Caccini wrote the first music recorded here, but the style he originated was later taken to distant, more expressive heights by greater composers, notably Monteverdi-but also, hardly less notably, by Rossi, d'India and Barbara Strozzi-who brought more intense eloquence to the musical line without destroying Caccini's prized clarity of speech. All these composers-and they are representative of many other seventeenth-century Italians whose songbooks are treasuries of mostly undiscovered delights-recognize the power of music to raise and quell the passions.
