Luca Marenzio was a composer who was held in unusually high esteem in his day - in fact even more so than Monteverdi himself. Monteverdi too felt fit to include him amongst the representative composers of the Seconda Prattica (Second Practice).

Rinaldo Alessandrini has been winning just and well earned accolades for his performances of Italian madrigals. For one they have the considerable advantage over other groups in that they are singing in their native language, Italian. Their mastery of the language but also of the pecularities of Italian in Marenzio's day (think of Shakespeare's English) also thorougly put non-Italian performers in the shade. Writing in Early Music (November, 1999) Rinaldo Alessandrini put it this way after criticising the modernisation of Italian pronounciation by Italian singers he went on:

"However, this is not nearly so bad as the barbarisms of singers whose mother tongue is not Italian, who are often deluded into thinking that an indiscriminate doubling of consonants (especially the Y and the T) can re-create the sound of the Italian language. To my astonishment, I have often heard the word 'dolore' changed to 'dol-lore', also with both 'o' sounds open to the point of sounding ridiculous. (Both the 'o's in 'dolore' are dark, the second a shade more than the first.)"

To Alessandrini the sound of English groups such as the Consort of Musicke singing Italian madrigals, where word painting and articulation are so crucial, must be like listening to Shakespeare in English from an amateur Italian theatre company.

The singing here in this anthology of madrigals by Marenzio from different published collections is predictably excellent with the superb intonation typical of this group.

This is a beautiful recording of almost 74 minutes worth of Marenzio's madrigals. The singing is perfect, and the singers are Italian, which I prefer with Italian lyrics. Most of the madrigali are unaccompanied. This cd won one of Gramaphone magazine's awards, which it certainly deserved, as it is the best collection of madrigali I own. The packaging includes extensive notes, and the lyrics in Italian, with English, French, and German translations.
