Niccola Monti (1767-1838)
Miserere for male voices, two violins and continuo
Nelle ore desolate di Maria, sacred Cantata for solos, choir and orchestra

We know very little about Niccola Monti, composer born in Penne (Pescara) where he lived between the XVIII and XIX century; this world premiere recording includes all that remained of his work that, unfortunately, went almost completely lost. His compositional ability is of extremely high level: even though he lived for his entire musical life in the environment of the Abruzzo province, Niccola Monti could remain updated and in line with the most modern style of the great european music schools, giving high personality and inspiration to his music. Through a very careful philological vocal and instrumental approach, the ensemble led by Marco Giacintucci offers to us the surviving sacred works, both connected to the Holy week, among which a special mention is deserved by the “Miserere”, passed down orally by choirs from 1800 to our days, becoming a unique heritage of the community of Penne.
