THE SEVEN PSALMS OF DAVID, VOL.II (BEMBO II)
La Donna Musicale’s second CD, The Seven Psalms of David, Vol. II, concludes the first-ever recording of The Seven Psalms of David by Antonia Padoani Bembo. As with Volume I, this recording also includes instrumental music by Bembo’s contemporary Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre. Taken together, they constitute the largest recorded compilation of Bembo’s music, as well as the first recording of the Psalms. They provide listeners not only with an opportunity to hear this very powerful and interesting music, but also with a fascinating glimpse into the world of neglected Baroque women composers such as Bembo, Jacquet de la Guerre, and their contemporaries.
