Title: Second Book of Five-Voice Madrigals AE40 cover
Composer: Tomaso Pecci
Editor: Wilfred Foxe
Reference: AE40
Price (GBP): 9.50
Description: The Sienese gentleman-amateur composer Tomaso Pecci was included in the list of exponents of the Seconda prattica which Giulio Cesare Monteverdi compiled in defence of his more famous brother Claudio. Published in 1612, these twenty-one madrigals share the text-inspired musical adventurousness characteristic of the more radical composers of the period; but they also display a formal sense and careful craftsmanship lacking in some of Pecci’s contemporaries. For five solo singers, mainly SATTB. xii + 96 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-144-8.
