Cavalli: Requiem; Grandi: Motets

The Venetian opera composer Francesco Cavalli wrote a good deal of sacred music that has been very poorly represented on recordings. That's a shame, as the mixture of Renaissance stile antico and Baroque continuo practice he cultivated in liturgical pieces like the "Requiem" mass recorded here has an expressive flavor all its own. The "Requiem" in particular is a marvelous work that Cavalli wrote in anticipation of his own demise. Although he left very specific instructions for its performance, conductor Alexander Schneider and the Ensemble Polyharmonique apply the small-group philosophy that was fashionable in early music circles in the 2010s. The interpolation of motets by one or more other composers (here it's a group by Alessandro Grandi) is a feature common in performances of masses from many eras.
