―…squisita musica strumentale ed eccellente musica vocale.‖ Pompilio Totti Ritratto di Roma 1638

C onsortium Carissimi was founded in Rome in 1996 with the intent of uncovering and bringing to modern
day ears the long forgotten Italian-Roman sacred and secular music of the 16th and especially the 17th
century. Among the various types of music that flourished in Rome during the 17 th century, the Oratories of Giacomo
Carissimi are perhaps examples of the most outstanding form of composition of that time. Consortium Carissimi
proudly takes on his name as a means for performance practice in both concerts and recordings, moving ahead in the
area of the manuscript transcription and the performances of his little known Motets and Cantatas.

Alongside the works of Carissimi, the ensemble also proposes music of his contemporaries, which was often mistaken
as music of Carissimi either for the similar style or for its simple, fresh new approach to text, melody and
accompaniment. Dedicating much of the research and concert activity to composers like Graziani, Rossi, Pasquini,
Agazzari, Marazzoli and Sances, Consortium Carissimi assures not only extremely interesting Concert
Programming, but provides a clearer picture of the musical fermentation of the Early Roman Baroque.

This repertory, wrongly forgotten and heard very little today, even within musicological-performance circles, offers
examples of the high level of musical creativity of the time and certainly no less excellent than the European output of
the 18th century. Of great importance is the performance of sacred and secular music transcribed from manuscript or
early print sources, which come from libraries located all over Europe. This work, which is done by its founder
Garrick Comeaux, allows Consortium Carissimi to program World Premier Concerts and Recordings. The musical
style, the affects of the texts, the ornamentation and the choice of the figured bass instruments are objects of continuous
research. It is however right within these parameters that Consortium Carissimi finds its reason for existence and
finds the vital energy necessary for the continuing research and performance practice.

The Italian Consortium Carissimi ensemble consists primarily of a small nucleus: three male vocal specialists, Fabio
Furnari, tenor; Marco Scavazza, baritone; yours truly as bass singer, and Vittorio Zanon, organ and musical
direction; Pietro Prosser, theorbo; and Crisitiano Contadin, viola da gamba. This Italian ensemble truly helped build
the solid foundation for introducing Consortium Carissimi to North America.

Today you will hear yet a different formation of the stateside ensemble of Consortium Carissimi. Twelve fine singers
and exceptional instrumentalists will each add particular colors of their own. Much of the early baroque repertory in
fact requires more mixed voices and additional instruments, as is in the case of this evening’s concert. It is our hope to
pursue the performance of these larger works of this era with this fine stateside ensemble, as well as to continue
musical collaboration with our Italian friends.

Se vuoi vivere in eterno, a Gradoli l'estate a Canino l'inverno
If you want to live in eternity, Gradoli in the summer and Canino in the winter Music for the Grape Harvest
Pope Paul III (1468-1549)

Soprani At Christmas 1655 Queen Christina of Sweden arrived in Rome, and in her honor the Barberini
Kristi Bergland family presented Marazzoli's allegorical opera La Vita humana during Carnival 1656 (Le armi e gli
Kathryn Higgins amori and Dal male il bene were also performed during carnival). Marazzoli used the title of virtuoso da
Beth Kainz camera to the queen, and it may be that he attended her during her singing lessons with Loreto
Alison Lund Vittori.
Naomi Staruch Marazzoli was well known also as a harp player. He possessed the famous gilded Barberini harp, now
in the Museo degli Strumenti Musicali – Roma, which was represented in a painting by Giovanni
Alti Lanfranco.
Timothy Faatz From April 1655 Marazzoli worked also for the new pope Alexander VII Chigi, who commissioned
Jerry Hinks festive cantatas for the Vatican, the Quirinal and Castel Gandolfo. You will hear his praises sung in
the final work of this concert, La Vendemmia.
Tenori Antonio Barberini experienced a new surge of religious faith about this time, and may have
Andrew Kane influenced the composer, who began to celebrate mass personally. It is interesting that Marazzoli's
Steve Staruch will, drawn up about 1660, names Anna Giustiniani, his adoptive niece since 1650, several members
of the Barberini family, Cardinal Giulio Rospigliosi and some other friends, but neither Queen
Bassi Christina of Sweden nor the Chigi family. We know that the queen admired Carissimi and Abbatini
Garrick Comeaux (and, later, musicians of a new generation), perhaps more than Marazzoli, and this may have been
Ben Henry-Moreland true of the pope as well, after an initial period of admiration. During Mass in the Cappella Sistina on
25 January 1662 Marazzoli was wounded in a serious accident; he died the next day.

Marc-Antoinne Charpentier, a student of our beloved Giacomo Carissimi, may have composed the Antonio Scandello Der Wein der schmeckt mir also wohl
drinking song you will hear, but he definitely composed his own Funeral Oration. This peculiar
1570 - 1580
piece, in Latin, sets the scene for a spooky Ghost to appear to two men by the names of Ignatius
and Marcellus. The Ghost or Spirit is of Charpentier himself. The dialogue that ensues revolves
around the brevity of life, and the need to consider eternity. After Charpentier introduces himself, William Lawes A dialogue for 3 voices and B.c.
the two men ask what kind of music is heard in the heavenly courts. He informs them that A health to the northern lass

Italian word caprino or little goat. After Charpentier recites a short prayer for divine intervention, the Two Part song for 3 voices and B.c.

Marazzoli was one of at least four children born to Dionisio and Flora de' Marazzoli of Parma. He Marco Marazzoli La Vendemmia
took holy orders and was presumably ordained priest about 1625. At that time he received a c.1602/8 – 1662
benefice from Parma Cathedral, but he had to forgo this on 27 February 1637 because of new
permanent duties at Rome. According to his autograph, Marazzoli moved to Rome in 1626.
