Vol. 5 of Opus 111’s exhaustive exploration of the treasures of the Neapolitan Baroque is a reconstruction of a Vespers service, with music chiefly by Francesco Provenzale (1624-1704). An up-front recording, and performances not afraid of the odd hint of opera buffa, bring some attractive music to vivid life. Anthony Burton
