Album Notes
This project is the end result of more than a decade of immersing myself in the music of early 17th century Italy. My aim first and foremost was to show just how great this music is - the visceral and immediate appeal to the emotions that was so important to composers of the time – and to do this in a way that would speak to people alive today. The result is a hybrid of new and old that is I hope true to the spirit of the Stile Moderno.
