The Secret Music of Luzzasco Luzzaschi



Some of the most florid and virtuosic music for voices ever written commissioned by Alfonso II, Duke of Ferrara in 1601 for his private trio of the most eminent sopranos of the day to perform to a select few in the inner sanctum of the ducal palace. Renowned early music singers Musica Secreta now reveal the beauties of this music and give masterly performances of this exciting secret music of the 'Ladies of Ferrara'.
