When Venetian opera experienced its true blossoming in the mid seventeenth century, Cavalli’s works
numbered among the main attractions. Indeed, he was one of the most productive composers in the
city on the lagoon, and his works greatly influenced the still young genre. However, apart from his
almost thirty preserved operas, he was also prolific in the area of church music. As a singer, organist,
and, from 1668, maestro di capella, he remained closely linked to Saint Mark’s Basilica his entire life,
composing Masses, vesper cycles, and oratorios.
Cavalli left behind precise instructions for the organization of his funeral ceremony. The work was to be performed by an opulent ensemble and repeated twice a year in
honor of his memory. However, his Missa de profundes soon fell into oblivion. On this touching
recording, Ensemble Polyphonique, under the direction of Alexander Schneider, has complemented
Cavalli’s Requiem with motets and sacred concertos by Alessandro Grandi, who was likewise active
at Saint Mark’s in Venice. The innovation and theological-philosophical sophistication of Cavalli’s
Requiem endures in its epoch-spanning impact.
