Toelichting:
Capuana's oeuvre that survived the ages is not very large, and contains Messa di difonti a quattro voci (posthumous, Venice,1650), Requiem Mass for 4 voices, Motetti concertati for 3 voices and continuo, and Sacre Armonie for 3 voices. Apparently unknown to the world however, is his Missa octo vocibus, duobus
alternantibus Choris ad organum modulanda - or Requiem Mass for 8 voices (double choir) and basso continuo. On the internet a manuscript can be found, dating back to 1645, that is the source for this album.
It is a rather simple but nevertheless deeply emotional piece of work.
It is short (some 11 minutes in total) and not a complete Requiem Mass: consisting of only 5 parts. No Sequentia, no Offertorium, a Sanctus without Benedictus and no Lux æterna or Libera me.
It is not known where he got his musical education and who had influenced him. You can hear that he must have known the music of Giovanni Gabrieli and Giovanni Croce. Some Venetian influence is clear. The more so since this mass was published in Venice by one of the major music publishers, Alessandro Vincenti. Other Venetian music publisher were of course, Ottaviano Petrucci and later, Girolamo Scotto and Antonio Gardano. Venice was the centre of Italy in music publishing.
