Pomponio Nenna performed his musical activity mainly between Naples and Rome. The first printed edition of the Christmas Responsory dates back to 1607 and gives a precise idea of Nenna's stylistic elevation, highlighting the wise and sophisticated skill he had achieved in the counterpoint technique; this is evident in the fluid and casual way the single melodic lines relate to each other and, at the same time, vertically overlap in sometimes daring harmony, fully accepting the characteristic of an era that was passing from the modal world to the tonal one. The source for performing and recording the present album is the original print of the work stored in the Library of the Conservatory of S.Pietro a Majella in Naples.
