'Musica Secreta's singing is perfectly matched to this music: the voices blend beautifully - the soaring sporanos paired with the full, warm tone of the altos - while their mastery of improvised embellishments and their technical and emotional range are impressive and highly effective.' International Record Review

 

Musica Secreta are an all-female vocal group whose aim is to sing some of the hidden repertoire written by women courtiers, courtesans and nuns in the baroque period. Chiara Margareita Cozzolani (1602-c.1677) was a Milanese noblewoman and nun, who wrote numerous sacred works for double choir, or various combinations of voices, and was a pupil of Monteverdi. The music of Cozzolani was published and recognised in her life-time. As a nun she had freedom to explore music and had many musical resources in the convent, which were unavailable to other women of her time.

This album includes premiere recordings of Regna terrae, cantate Deo; Colligite, pueri, flores; Tu Dulcis, O bone Jesu; Quid, miseri, quid faciamus; Maria Magdalene stabat; Ave Mater dilectissima; Psallite, superi; O caeli cives; Venite, sodales.
