Francesca Caccini: O Viva Rosa
Label: Analekta
Released: March 23, 2010

Francesca Caccini, or "La Cecchina", was a Florence-born composer. Soprano Shannon Mercer reveals herself to be the perfect performer of this vocal oeuvre: heartfelt Baroque music with a foot in the Renaissance era. Sylvain Bergeron (theorbo, baroque guitar), Luc Beauséjour (harpsichord, organ) and Amanda Keesmaat (cello) are the ideal musical companions. This is one of the first albums entirely devoted to Caccini's work.
