The emergence of the basso continuo (or “figured bass”) was one of the critical moments in this history of music. Figured bass, upon which a keyboard player or lutenist could improvise harmony, meant that a single musician could provide the necessary harmonies which would previously have needed several players. In the early part of the seventeenth century, large numbers of extremely virtuosic solo motets and sonatas started to appear. The combination of solo voice with one instrument and continuo was quite common, and pieces with violin were the most common of all.

This new collection from Cordaria features cantatas for soprano, violin and basso continuo, written by composers including Samuel Capricornus, Dietrich Buxtehude, Antonio Vivaldi , Georg Phillipp Telemann and Georg Frederic Handel

"This clever selection of repertoire opens with a number of works which customarily fall between the cracks. The music by Samuel Capricornus, Tarquinio Merula, Dietrich Buxtehude and Daniel Purcell more than justifies its inclusion, and as with the more familiar repertoire by Vivaldi, Handel and Telemann which follows, it is radiantly and intelligently sung by Linda Pedrillo. She is ably supported by Cordario under the direction of Walter Reiter, whose obligato violin playing is also beautifully expressive. A wide range of continuo instruments ensures a constantly varying textures and the whole venture is underpinned by a delightful freshness and musicality."
