Giovanni Battista Fasolo (1598-1680) was born in Asti (Italy) and spent his life as a Franciscan Friar in Rome, Naples and finally as Maestro di Cappella at the Cathedral of Monreale, Sicily. He is mainly known for his “Annuale”, the largest compendium of organ music for liturgical use written in the 17th century.
This new recording presents his Magnificat, the Salve Regina and a collection of Ricercares and Canzonas, written for organ, and also used in the liturgy, all splendid examples of Italian sacred music in the transition from Renaissance to Baroque.
Played on two rare historic organs: the Antegnati organ (1589) in the Verona Cathedral and the Montefalco organ (1509) in Trevi (Umbria).
Played and sung with total dedication and deep knowledge of the style by organist Federico del Sordo and In Dulci Jubilo conducted by Alberto Turco, who already successfully recorded similar repertoire for Brilliant Classics: Organ Alternatim Masses by Merulo and Salvatore.
The scholarly written liner notes are by the artists.
