Giaches de Wert, a Flemish composer linked to the courts of Mantua and Ferrara, paved the way for the innovations in madrigalistic writing, that seconda prattica which became associated with Monteverdi. This recording features some of his later madrigalistic compositions, on texts of Torquato Tasso's Gierusalemme liberata and Battista Guarini's Il pastor fido. The historical La Venexiana singers deliver their best for this milestone interpretaiton of a lesser known repertory.
