- About this book
The «Raccolta di mottetti del Marotta» contains 37 compositions on basso continuo. The ‘well-concerted harmony, both sweet yet devout’ is always dense and variegated, full of audacious dissonances and accidentals: having an highly imaginative capacity that effectively renders the meaning of the words. The sensuality of the «Cantico dei Cantici» and other biblical texts is developed to its utmost by the music that always succeeds in sublimating it.
