Description:
This book by Ignazio Donato - in the Library of Bologna, Italy - from 1618 is called: “Concerti Ecclesiastici a Due, Tre, Quattro & Cinque Voci, con il Basso per sonar nell’Organo, d’Ignatio Donati, maestro di Cappella dello Spirito Santo de Ferrara. Opera Quarta, Dedicati all’ Illustrissimo Signor Conte Nicolo Roverelli.” Printed in Venice by Giacomo Vincenti in 1618; Vincenti being one of the three major music publishers of Venice, together with Scotto and Gardano.
This is the fourth book of Concerti Ecclesiastici presented by Donemus, after the ones by Giovanni Bassano, Giovanni Martino Cesare and Fra Arcangelo Crotti. The style of these motets is festive, the voices cascading after one another. The basso continuo part is an individual part and not dubbing the lowest voice in the whole piece, as we often see in basso continuo parts.
