Giacomo Carissimi was one of the most admired of seventeenth-century Italian
composers. The maestro from Marino, near Rome, acquired a Europe-wide fame at
an early age and excelled in church music. Commonly employing texts that modify or
amplify passages from the scriptures, rather than taking those texts verbatim, Carissimi
employed all his genius for vocal melodic lines and accompanying instrumentation to
fashion a sequence of spellbinding masterpieces. Foremost among these is Usquequo
peccatores which, through its size and length, blurs the very distinction between motet
and oratorio. This is the fourth Naxos release of music by Carissimi from this ensemble.
