Ah Clori

Add to cart
  • Description
This duet is marked "allegro", and it is full of the passion that the text describes. If the second soprano part is consistently the lower, it is no less demanding technically.

Audite omnes gentes

Add to cart
  • Description
This motet is written in praise of the Virgin. There are two lyrical triple time sections and two imitative duple time passages. The unusual combination of voices (Soprano and Tenor, although the composer does suggest two Tenors as an alternative) make it all the more appealling.

Confitebor tibi Domine

Add to cart
  • Description
Rigatti published a large volume of church music in 1640 and dedicated it to Ferdinand III of Austria, possibly in the hope of securing a job, perhaps even ahead of his boss at the time, Claudio Monteverdi. This Confitebor setting shows that he was quite a serious threat to the older man, and it is a tragedy that Rigatti died prematurely.

Jubilate gaudete

Paraphrasing the opening of Psalm 65 [66], this extended motet is perhaps not as virtuosic as some of Rigatti's other output, but it's constantly varying meters and sinuous lines are a delight for both singers and listeners.
