One of the most interesting concerts of the 11th Festival of Oratory Music MUSICA SACROMONTAN in 2016 was devoted to Laudi Spirituali , the spiritual hymn of St. Founded during the work of the Association of Music Fans of the Church of St. Mary in Vallicella in Rome. These renaissance musical beauties bring together the figure and spirituality of the founder of the Congregation of the Pharaohs, a fascinating testimony to the musical culture of their time. Lauds belong to the oldest repertoire of songs in Italian language - the creator of the genre is considered Saint. Francis of Assisi. During the three centuries that have passed since the time of St. Francis to the late Renaissance, the genre has evolved and transformed a bit - it was Philip Neri's favorite music, and often composed for him by highly-educated composers - still lauds remained cheerful, relatively straightforward in the form of songs, of a sacred character, close to the folklore of the city. It is characterized by simplicity, which seems to fit into the place of prayer and my intention, which was exclusively arousing piety, wrote one of the most famous creators of the genre, Giovanni Animuccia.
