Collegium Vocale Gent presents a program of madrigals by Carlo Gesualdo di Venosa, a member of the nobility who composed for his own pleasure, creating works that harmonically were some 300 years ahead of their time. Lutenist Thomas Dunford is heard in works by Kapsberger and Dowland. Recorded live in concert May 31 in Sion, Switzerland.
