Ecco l’alba luminosa, Vergine Bella

Concert as included in the Christmas programme of the city of Madrid.

The luxurious Baroque Rome of Popes Urbano VIII and Inocencio X, the one built by Bernini and Borromini that we admire so much today, listened to the refined music of Palestrina and Mazzocchi. Their spiritual madrigals sublimated the art of sensual desire to address it to the most beloved figure of the Catholic Counter-Reformation, the Virgin Mary, the discreet protagonist of the Nativity Story: together with Accademia del Piacere we can enjoy the music of the exclusive, subtle and sophisticated atmosphere of the Roman cardinal aristocracy of the Seicento.
