The New York Continuo Collective presents a survey of Italian solo song, from the collections of frottole popular at the turn of the sixteenth century, through the rise of the madrigal in the 1520s to the advent of monody in the first decades of the seventeenth century. Works of Bartolomeo Tromboncino, Philippe Verdelot, Jacques Arcadelt, Adrian Willaert, Francesco Layolle, Hippolito Tromboncino and Cipriano da Rore, presented with embellishments by Diego Ortiz, Giovanni Camillo Maffei, G.B. Bovicelli, and our own singers. Monodies and duets by Jacopo Peri, Marco da Gagliano, Sigismondo d'India, Claudio Monteverdi, Francesco Rasi, and Girolamo Frescobaldi.
