Simfoniæ Romanæ: 17th Century Instrumental Music From Rome
Rome was a vibrant musical center during the seventeenth-century, primarily due to the Catholic Church's patronage. Great instrumentalists, such as Girolamo Frescobaldi and Hieronymus Kapsberger, made Rome their home. Other famous instrumentalists, like the lutenist Lelio Colista, became fabulously wealthy. Works also by G. A. Leoni, Alessandro Stradella, C. A. Lonati and Carlo Mannelli.
