DONIZETTI, G.: Vesper Psalms (A.L. Brown, Feith, Krödel, Sammer, M. Schäfer, Rosenbaum, Ochoa, N.Mallmann, Simon Mayr Choir, Concerto de Bassus, Hauk)

Gaetano Donizetti is renowned as a leading composer of the Italian romantic bel canto opera style during the first half of the 19th century. But in his earlier years and as a student of Simon Mayr his dramatic genius came to the fore in his settings of psalm texts for Vespers, a form then still popular in Italy both in secular and liturgical contexts. Donizetti’s Vesper Psalms are characterised by beautifully shaped operatic melodies and colourful orchestration on a grand scale, creating moments of real rhetorical force—outstanding features of works that have lain undiscovered in manuscript form for two centuries.
