Sigismondo d'India, 'nobleman of Palermo', as he called himself, composer, singer and poet, was a true child of dawning
century. Like his great contemporary Monteverdi, he succeeded in integrating polyphony into the new monodic style. But it is
above all in his Musiche da cantar solo that he showed his measure as an innovator. These madrigals for solo voice, selected
from around a hundred works he wrote in this genre, provide dazzling evidence of the fact.
This title was released for the first time in 2003.
