J. Arcadelt & D. Ortiz & M. Cord-to-Krax — Recercada II, Diferentia & Recercada III after O felici occhi miei
Milena Cord-to-Krax, recorder; Alejandro Casal, harpsichord
Last February’s student concert at Seville’s Conservatory was on the topic of 16th century music. I played three different versions of J. Arcadelt’s madrigal O felici occhi miei: the first one are diminutions by Diego Ortiz for the upper voice, played on a consort tenor blockflute by Bob Marvin. The second version are diminutions by myself, after Ortiz, for the bass voice and the third version are again original glosas by Ortiz as well for the bass voice — these are played on a consort g basset by Bob Marvin.
