Από τους μεγάλους δάσκαλους της εποχής του μπαρόκ – όχι γνωστός όσο θα ‘πρεπε στο ευρύ κοινό – είναι ο Alessandro Scarlatti [πατέρας του Domenico], συνθέτης ενός πλήθους φωνητικών κυρίως έργων.
Ακούμε δυο εκκλησιαστικούς ύμνους του “πατέρα της ναπολιτάνικης όπερας”.
Την Χορωδία Schutz του Λονδίνου διευθύνει ο Roger Norrington.

One of the great masters of the Baroque era – not as well known as it should be to the general public – is Alessandro Scarlatti [Domenico’s father], composer of a multitude of vocal works.
We hear two ecclesiastical hymns of the “father of Neapolitan opera”.
London’s Schutz Choir is conducted by Roger Norrington.

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
