The a cappella instrumental and vocal ensemble Delitiæ Musicæ was established in 1992. It is considered one of the most enterprising Italian early music ensembles, with important recordings in the last ten years that include the Missa Philomena Praevia of Verdelot, four widely acclaimed albums (Choc du disque and 9 de Répertoire in France, as well as the Spanish Five Stars Award) dedicated to Masses of Palestrina based on the compositions of the Flemish composer Cipriano de Rore, Lupus and Jacquet de Mantua. Delitiæ Musicæ, directed by Marco Longhini, has also recorded Adrian Willaert’s Vespro di Natale (Editor’s Choice, Classica, April 1999) and books of madrigals—Pazzia senile and Saviezza giovenile, Studio dilettevole and Il Metamorfosi—by Banchieri. The unconventional yet impassioned interpretations by Delitiæ Musicæ and Marco Longhini are seen as an important element in the regeneration of Italian Renaissance and baroque music. The ensemble is under exclusive contract to Naxos for the fourteen-CD collection of the Complete Madrigals by Monteverdi and now for the seven-CD collection of Complete Madrigals by Gesualdo.
