Guido Morini (direction, harpsichord) and Marco Beasley (vocal) founded Accordone in 1984, motivated by a great passion for the music before Bach, for original instruments and for a new musicological approach to problems of interpretation. "La Bella Noeva" is a programme presenting all the musical and interpretative features which characterize their work. Ranging from Gregorian chant to Monteverdi, from the ancient tarantellas of Salento to music expressly composed by Guido Morini, Marco Beasely's charismatic voice captivates the listener as he rediscovers a repertory that has all too often been regarded as the preserve of specialists and musicologists.

This new recording pays tribute to an ill-known, mysterious figure of 18th-century Naples: Prince Raimondo di Sangro. A soldier, scientist, poet, alchemist and freemason, he bequeathed us a palace and a magnificent chapel, the site of a tragedy that was at the origin of the murder committed by the great composer Gesualdo.

This CD is an album that falls into a niche category of productions. Those familiar with the band's history will recognize the main title of this album, as it is the same as their debut album from 1972. The subtitle, “The Complete Works”, indicates that this isn't merely a reissue, of course. It is not a reissue with added bonus tracks or in other manners issued in an extended version either. Instead, this is a remake of their first album. New recordings of their old album, extended with additional tracks, and when I compare the track list of this 2014 edition with the original album, it appears that the album has been rearranged fairly extensively too. Some compositions are shorter, other are longer, some appear to be missing altogether, at least as far as track titles go. It is, in short, a new album, a brand new version of their debut album from 1972.

La Divina Armonia - Lorenzo Ghielmi

This Passion is something special, and so is the booklet of 84 pages. It contains the complete lyrics, with translations in English, German, French and Italian. There are concise liner notes by Lorenzo Ghielmi. I had liked them to be more extended and include the remarks about the performance which I referred to above. Also in the booklet are beautiful pictures from the Sacro Monte sopra Varese. They are from the five 'sorrowful mysteries' from the Mysteries of the Rosario, depicting the Passion of Christ. They do go well with the music by Feo.
In short, this is an exemplary production which can only be strongly recommended.

In his Passion according to St. John, Rore created a masterpiece of plainchant elaboration in polyphony. Unlike other Passion settings of the period, this one sets the entire text, while carefully adhering to the Gregorian recitation tones and structures for the Passion. The syllabic declamation of the text gives a powerful "speaking" effect, while avoiding the madrigalisms Rore is better known for.
