Carissimi’s Jephte and Missa l’Homme armé

Uploaded by CrescendoMusic
Crescendo Vocal Ensemble, Pablo Bustos - Jephte, Christina Kay - Filia, Douglas Williams - Historicus, Soloists, and Period Instrument Ensemble, directed by Christine Gevert The Italian composer Giacomo Carissimi – who continued Claudio Monteverdi’s legacy of dramatic vocal music – tells the story of a human tragedy in one of the first oratorios, Jephte. The Israelite general Jephte and his people celebrate a great military victory, and then sink into despair over the loss of Jephte’s beloved daughter. Carissimi’s twelve-voice mass of the Early Baroque is based on the famous medieval folk tune “The Armed Man.”
