Baroque Nun Composer
J. Burton | 03/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The vocal ensemble and period-instrument accompanists of Musica Secreta perform vocal works from Componimenti Musicali by the Italian nun and composer Lucrezia Vizzana (1590-1662).

"Vizzana's Componimenti musicali is a collection of devotional motets and spiritual love songs - some addressing Jesus in the quasi-erotic, perfumed language reminiscent of the Song of Songs, others in praise of music. Vizzana's vocal lines, with their surging ecstatic melismas and rhetorical gestures, are appropriately honeyed, and at its best this music could pass for Monteverdi or Barbara Strozzi. ... Musica Secreta specialises in the 'secret music' written by or for women in the 17th century. There is no doubt about the integrity and intelligence of its performances, and the sound of the ensemble's female voices is refined and exquisitely sweet" (BBC Music Magazine)
