We are very excited at having received the first edits back from our January recording session of our upcoming CD, tentatively entitled “Udite Amanti–Lovers, Beware!: Music from the Seventeenth-Century Barberini Court.” You can read more specifics about the repertoire and composers on this CD in recent blog posts, but in brief this looks like shaping up to be an enchanting mix of instrumental solos and duets punctuating sung trios, duets, and solos all accompanied by various combinations of lute, theorbo, baroque guitar, and baroque triple (Barberini!) harp.
The music is alternatively flirtatious, plaintive, lush, and ethereal, with our producer and recording engineer having gotten a very rich sound out of our palette of three voices and historical plucked strings. It is a sound that promises to take you back nearly 400 years, immersing you in a world of intrigue, privilege, and passion.
We are currently preparing some clips to post on our website to give you a sneak preview of what you can expect from the CD. Stay tuned for these and let us know what you think when you hear them…we hope you will be as excited about the finished disc as we are!
