- About this book
Bonaventura Rubino held the position of cathedral chapel-master at Palermo between 1643 and 1665 where he published his seven works, forming a single liturgical work entitled «Tesoro armonico». It resumes, amplifies and developes Monteverdi's «Selva». This fifth opera contains twenty three «Salmo varii variamente concertati con sinfonie d'obligo et a beneplacito»: amongst them those directed by the composer himself in the memorable vespers of 1644 of which a fidelity reproduction today recorded on CD was awarded the Premio Vivaldi in 1995.
