Consortium Carissimi was founded in Rome in 1996 with the mission of bringing to modern audiences neglected Italian music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries through concerts, master-classes, recordings and publications. Consortium Carissimi consists of ten to thirty musicians, including singers and period instruments. It contributes to the cultural vitality of the community in four key ways: 1) Manuscript transcription and publication: Consortium Carissimi is the only organization in the United States that has in its library transcriptions of over 200 manuscripts of this period, including the complete works of Giacomo Carissimi. 2) Educational programmes: Consortium Carissimi conducts masterclasses with educational institutions, both at home and abroad; masterclasses include intense study of vocal and instrumental practices of seventeenth-century Rome. 3) Performances: the ensemble of mixed voices and instruments performs three concerts annually of repertoire from the Italian-Roman sacred and secular music of the early baroque. 4) Recordings: Consortium Carissimi extends public access to and knowledge of this musical tradition through digital recordings. The ensemble’s unique commitment to Italian works of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries is quickly establishing its rôle as an international pioneer.
