Gaffi, Bernardo (c.1677 - 1744)

Marian antiphon

Leo, Leonardo (1694 - 1744)

Marian antiphon
  • Salve Regina (c)
    Forces: soprano, strings & continuo
    A darker and more complex setting of the Marian antiphon than the well-known F major version. Some exquisite harmonic shifts, changes in instrumentation and beautiful, singable vocal writing. Divided into 5 sections (one in two parts) the text is painted with a vivid palette of instrumental and vocal colour.
    Source: BL MS R.M.23.c.17.(3), once the property of Dr. Burney.

  • Salve Regina (F)
    Forces: soprano, strings & continuo
    Source: Royal Music Collection 23.c.17.(3)
    A new edition of Leo's exquisite Salve Regina in F major.
    In 6 sections - Largo, Allegro, Largo, Allegretto, Recitativo, Largo it has excellent variation between sections, the fourth running directly into the recit using a descending figuration. This piece has the ability to really move the listener. It is one of the works which make one ask, "Why, to a large extent, was this composer forgotten for so long?"
    Range: d - b flat''

  • Salve Regina (d)
    Forces: alto, strings & continuo
    Source: copyist's work in the British Library
