One of a kind
The sonatas of the Concerti Ecclesiastici are often used as intermezzi in Claudio Monteverdi's vespers of 1610. Cima composed these Concerti in 1610 as well. Although I find these sonatas (especially those that include the cornetto) pearls of minimalistic chamber music, this recording is the only (integral) one I could find on the internet. This literally means it's one of a kind.
I can't say the same for it's quality. The strings and the vocalists are fine. The cornetto is not that fine. And the flauti a becco or recorders are just plain awful.
Nevertheless, this is beautiful music. Therefor I recommend spending the EUR 9.99 to anyone interested in old music.
