World Première Recordings of the complete surviving works
Over the last twenty years, performances and scholarship have given us some idea of the remarkable musical world of cloistered nuns in early modern Italy. Magnificat’s recording of the complete 1650 publication by one such nun, Chiara Margarita Cozzolani (1602-c.1677), testifies to both her own musical creativity and to the high skills of the musicians in her Benedictine house of Santa Radegonda in Milan.
Composer: Chiara Margarita Cozzolani
