By M. J. Smith VINE VOICE on January 15, 2001
Format: Audio CD
I have a passion for musical renditions of the Lamentations of the Prophet Jeremiah. This year, I stumbled onto a marvelous three volume set of baroque lamentations of which this is the first. As usual, Naxos provides solid performances at low cost.
The first track is the Lamentations of the Prophet Jeremiah in Gregorian chant. This is a solid performance ranking well among several solid performances available on cd.
The second track is the Lament of the Blessed Virgin on the Lament of Arianna from an opera. This is a wonderful Monteverdi piece that was new to me. The poetry of the words provides an interesting insight into the view of Mary in the Baroque era.
Lament on the Passcaglia is a lament of lost love - interesting but more generic "baroque" than the other selections.
The Lament of Mustafa and Bayazet is a cantata with narrator, Mustafa, Chorus, Amarat, Bayazet, etc. as separate voices. The lament is of Ottomans awaiting death at the orders of their brothers. The interplay of the words and the music make this an enjoyable piece. The final track is also by Rossi - a love lament that is an interesting, enjoyable piece of Baroque music though not one of the "top ten" masterpieces of the era.
The Three Graces to Venus is especially interesting as we rarely here of female baroque composers. However, the piece with its Greek myth inspired words, is rightly included in its own right - independent of gender issues.

This past fall, I sat in on a Master's level class on 17th Century Art and Music. The music part of the class focused on the Mass and the music of Monteverdi and the Oratorios of Carrisimi, specifically the Lament of Jeptha's daughter. I came home with my interest piqued, and went to Amazon. I was quite pleasantly surprised to find not one, but three volumes of Baroque Laments, all done by the same people and the same director. First, these three volumes are spectacular in their choice of music and in performance quality. The harpsichordist is wonderful, and the voices all are exemplary in their execution of the style. All in all, its over three hours of exploration of a genre that was quite new to me. To add to those albums, Naxos has put out a disc called THE ITALIAN DRAMATIC LAMENT, by a different group, and utilizing the theorbo, or bass lute. I first saw and heard a theorbo in the DVD of the Vespro della Beata Virgine 1610, with Gardiner, live in St. Mark's Basilica in Venice. The theorbo is a huge instrument and very difficult to play, and makes a wonderful accompaniment for laments. I realize I've lumped a great deal together, but if someone desires to really explore this type of music and sound, this is the way to do it!

This series mixes well the well known (on this disc Monteverdi's sacred reworking in Latin of his own operatic 'mega-hit' Lamento d'Arianna) with unknown gems (Rossi's 24'41" long Lamento di Mustafa e Bajazet, the execution song of two Turkish princes). The second piece by Rossi, while excellent, is not really a lament so much as a lovesick pean. Full texts and translations (as in the later volumes also). Recommended.
