5.0 out of 5 stars a voice teacher and early music fan December 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase

Giocomo Carissimi (1605-1674) as notable in his time as Monteverdi, was a church musician from his childhood as a chorister and then organist in Tivoli. After 1627 he became choirmaster at St. Ruffino Cathedral church and from there went to the prestigious Basilica of Saint Apollinare in Rome. By mid-century he enjoyed a reputation throughout Europe.

Carissimi is remembered for his contribution to the development of Oratorio, for which he made the setting of the text in an immediately intelligible way of prime importance. The motets herein fully reflect the considerable variety in formal style, in color, in linguistic expression and refined approach to the senses, thereby creating a small but comprehensive musical library. The ten motets have all the characteristics of the best of his oratorios. They also at times have an indebtedness to Monteverdi while at the same time pointing forward to Schutz and Charpentier. This is evident when one looks closely at the last motet: "Suscitavit Dominus" (Track 10) scored for tenor, baritone and bass.

The motet "In te, Domine Speravi" (Track 4) scored for alto, tenor and bass, is so much like Monteverdi from his 'Selvi Moralie Spirituale' 1640, that one might confuse one for the other. However, two motets that are pure Carissimi are "Suscitavit" with its open melodic lines and jaunty rhythm; 'O Vulnera dolois' with its delicious melody is made more beautiful by the exquisite bass voice of Garrick Comeaux, a guiding influence of the Consortium Carissimi.

The Consortium Carissimi was formed in 1966 to attempt to rediscover Carissimi's music, and to play on correct instruments at the correct historical pitch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Originally scored sacred music March 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As I stated in my review of the Carissimi mass by Naxos theses motets sound more like songs than other sacred motets that I have heard but that does not mean that they are not effective. For the most part the motets are infectiously joyous which is well conveyed by the Consortium Carissimi uses historically appropriate group of instruments to highlight the text.
