8 CD set with a hardback book
RICERCAR RIC107 [8 CDs: ca 620 mins]

This is the second volume in Ricercar’s History of Early Music series and runs to ten and half hours of music. It follows on from Music in Europe at the time of the Renaissance (RIC 106), with this 8 CD compilation covering the period from the late 1500s to late 1600s taking in the transition to the Baroque era. It deals with aspects of both sacred and secular music and how they developed and how they were influenced by the birth of various new musical forms including opera, oratorio and sonata. This is a wide-ranging survey of the composers featured, some of whom, I must confess, are new to me. The era is illustrated with performances by some of the most acclaimed ensembles and soloists. The set also features a truly wonderful book by Jérôme Lejeune, which discusses the Baroque aesthetic and all aspects of the music featured here.

The set is attractively packaged; it is presented in a gatefold sleeve (202 x 146 x 60mm) with the book in the front slot and the wallet containing the discs in the rear. Before we address the music we must discuss the book, as it is this which for me makes this set as valuable as it is. Jérôme Lejeune has not just written notes to accompany the music, rather the music has been chosen to accompany the book. It contains what can best be described as a thesis in which Lejeune sets out his argument, fairly well too, for a new understanding of the concept of ‘The Baroque’. Only then does he go on to discuss aspects of the music of the period. There he talks of composers without overtly referring to some of the works presented on the accompanying discs. He has divided the book into sections Secular Vocal Music and the Birth of Opera. He examines the development of the cantata, as well as that of opera, with Monteverdi’s ‘Orfeo’ being singled out as “the apotheosis of the Renaissance”. This is followed by sections on Sacred Music, Instrumental Music: Canzoni, Sonate and Balli and Instrumental Music for Polyphonic Instruments. This very full survey goes beyond the musical examples presented here. It has however presented a problem for me in that I am now seeking further recordings to illustrate the words presented in this book.

The music is laid out following the same sections as the book, with discs 1-4 dealing with secular music, discs 5 and 6 (tr. 1-9) the sacred music, with the remainder dedicated to chamber and instrumental music. Although the set is entitled “The Time Of Monteverdi”, this is hardly a set dedicated to him and his circle. Indeed, of the 134 tracks, only 23 are by the great man, with the others presenting the wide diversity of the music of the period. Some pieces are by composers whose names I only know from footnotes of musical history. On this reckoning they deserve greater recognition. The set has been well sourced with the with most recordings coming from Ricercar and other Outhere labels. There are also recordings from Virgin, Harmonia Mundi, DHM, Erato and MDG. However the choice of Glossa’s set of the Complete Madrigals Books (Glossa 920929) to illustrate the works of Monteverdi was a master-stroke as I have always felt that this set gives great insight into his madrigals. All the works are presented in excellent recordings, with some becoming new favourites of mine. They have all been captured in excellent sound. On this evidence I will be looking at investing in the previous volume of this series.
