DELITIÆ MUSICÆ

The a cappella instrumental and vocal ensemble Delitiae Musicæ was established in 1992. It is considered one of the most enterprising Italian early music ensembles, with important recordings in the last 20 years that include the Missa Philomena Praevia of Verdelot, four widely acclaimed albums (Choc du disque and 9 de Répertoire in France and the Five Stars Award in Spain) dedicated to Masses of Palestrina based on the compositions of the Flemish composer Cipriano de Rore, Lupus and Jacquet de Mantua. Delitiae Musicæ, always under the direction of Marco Longhini, has also recorded Adrian Willaert’s Vespro di Natale (Editor’s Choice, Classica, April 1999) and books of madrigals—Pazzia senile, Saviezza giovenile, Studio dilettevole and Metamorfosi—by Banchieri.

The unconventional yet impassioned interpretations by Delitiae Musicæ and Marco Longhini are seen as an important regeneration of Italian Renaissance and Baroque music. The ensemble is under exclusive contract to Naxos for a fifteen-CD collection of the Complete Madrigals by Monteverdi and a seven-CD collection of the Complete Madrigals by Gesualdo.
