Notes (March 2015)
Bolognese composer, organist, organ builder, and maestro di cappella Giovanni Paolo Colonna (1637–1695) is undoubtedly one of those major musicians of the late seventeenth century whose music could benefit from more attention than it has received so far. ... Francesco Lora’s introduction proceeds with an in-depth analysis of the libretto, including some reflections on possible reception today of the gory details of the text, which seem to have been a special interest of Colonna’s. ... Lora’s original Italian text is beautifully written, and his research cites virtually all the recent publications on the topic, thereby showing the editor’s excellent command of current scholarship. ... The score is extremely clear, clean, and easy to read. ... this publication is not only a most welcome contribution to the field and to the knowledge of an often-ignored and highly important center of late-seventeenth- century music, but it is an extremely precise and well-crafted modern edition of Colonna’s oratorio.
