Aquilino Coppini, an intellectual in the service of Cardinal Borromeo, was a keen admirer of Monteverdi’s madrigals. Secular though they were. But when proposing them to the ecclesiastic circles of his day, he replaced the original verses with religious poetry. Today, thanks to recent research, we can hear how waves, birds, and streams transform into devotional expressions.

Claudio Monteverdi, Aquilino Coppini

Ardebat igne puro (Volgea l'anima mia)

Tu vis a me abire (Voi pur da me partite)

Jesu, dum te contemplor (Cor mio, mentre vi miro)

Domine, Deus meus (Anima mia, perdona)

O gloriose martyr (Che se tu se il cor mio)

O stellae coruscantes (Sfogava con le stelle)

Plagas tuas adoro (La piaga, c'ho nel core)

Claudio Monteverdi

Io mi son giovinetta

Claudio Monteverdi, Aquilino Coppini

Longe a te, mi Jesu (Longe da te, cor mio)

O Jesu, mea vita (Sì, ch'io vorrei morire)

Il concerto è preceduto da una breve introduzione di Stefano Catucci
