Protestations of undying love, mostly unrequited, spur Strozzi to striking harmonic experiments in this revolutionary ‘new music’. Galli responds to every nuance, recorded a touch distantly behind Ensemble Galilei’s varied continuo – driving percussive theorboes and guitars and gentle chamber organ. George Pratt
