Product details

In late 2007, I set off to Italy on an exciting journey to uncover the music of Baroque composers Carlo and Giovanni Bonetti, which was originally published in the mid 17th century. Following a successful journey, I began the process of transcribing these pieces into modern musical notation. I then wrote two pieces directly based on two of their pieces. The original Latin texts from their pieces were used as the basis for my own pieces,, and I incorporated melodies, harmonies and chord progressions used by Carlo and Giovanni Bonetti.

Within minutes of embarking on a crude translation of O Quam Felix Est I was utterly captivated by such gorgeous, beautiful and joyful text. And so, with a draft transcription placed upon the piano stand, I began to enter into the musical world of Giovanni Bonetti. Within minutes, little musical fragments, cadences, motifs and melodies would leap out the page and tickle my imagination. I then took these and twisted them into my own composition.
