Before opera, there was the madrigal comedy: unstaged but dramatic collections of short vocal pieces which, when sung consecutively, told a story. This program includes Adriano Banchieri’s lighthearted and entertaining Contrappunto Bestiale, along with a wide range of madrigals by Monteverdi, Morley, Strozzi and others. Choir accompanied by continuo (harpsichord, theorbo, baroque cello).
