Along with Gerard Lesne's recording of Bononcini cantatas on Virgin (now reissued as librettoless budget double), this is one of the best monuments to the older of the Bononcini brothers. The recording dates from 1988 and Cristina Miatello is on typically fine form.
The only niggle (as always with Tactus) is the lack of English translations with the Italian texts, but you can always lie back and enjoy the beauty of Ms. Miatello's warbling. Tactus are to be congratulated for digging out many gems from the 17th Century... cantatas by Conti, Leo, and of course Vivaldi, among them. It's worth noting here Tactus tribute to the younger Bononcini brother - The Decapitation of John the Baptist - conducted by Sandro Volta, recorded 1999. Not everyone's taste perhaps but a reminder that all musical families mixed sacred and secular at the time.

A few days ago I was browsing the classical music collection in my local public library in search of some music I hadn't heard before. The library's collection contained CDs of music by a number of composers whom I had never heard, or for that matter, never heard of, including this CD of Cantate Italiane, by the Italian composer Giovanni Battiste Bononcini (1670-1747).

I'd never heard of Giovanni Bononcini so I decided to check this one out.

This turned out to be an excellent CD of Italian baroque vocal music; I liked it enough that I ordered my own copy.

The vocalists on the CD, Gloria Banditelli (mezzosoprano) and Christina Miatello (soprano) are very good, as is the Ensemble Aurora, the four piece chamber group supporting them.

This CD is easy to overlook. The composer is hardly a well known name in classical music, the vocalists and the Ensemble Aurora are artists I have never heard of and the CD is released by a fairly obscure record label.

But, despite all that, this is an excellent CD. If you like classical music from the baroque period, take a chance on this one.

Overall, a very worthwhile CD for anyone who likes classical music from the period.
