To talk of the rediscovery of Neapolitan Baroque music is to speak of Antonio Florio and his Cappella della Pieta de' Turchini (recently renamed simply as I Turchini). In this recording made in 1993, and with a fantastic line-up of vocal soloists - which includes no less than Roberta Invernizzi - Florio moves into the revitalization of the sacred Neapolitan music which took place at the beginnings of the 17th c., clearly influenced by Monteverdi at the expense of the more archaic style, rather like in Gesualdo, which had prevailed until then.
