Project III – Usquequo peccatores

Repertory: Eight Motets of Carissimi

Consortium Carissimi has performed over these past seven seasons many of Carissimi’s larger scale motets. The metamorphosis of the motet into the oratory is particular to this period of composition, rendering the distinction between the two difficult. This project brings back eight motets of Giacomo Carissimi.
