The music which Giuseppe Allevi, chapel master of Piacenza Cathedral from 1652-1670, wrote for the ballet «Le ninfe del Po» on the text of Bernardo Morando in 1644 is lost. But we still have his various «Compositioni sacre» and especially his thirty-eight motets («sacri affetti») for one, two, three and four voices composed with vivid imagination and a sure hand. Special attention has also been devoted to his «dialoghi spirituali», implicitly dramatic oratorial «micro-scenes» designed to entertain and at the same time inspire devotion.
