The «Italian Madrigal Book» of the British vocal ensemble EXAUDI ranges from the Renaissance to the present day, interweaving Italian and Franco-Flemish madrigals, full of powerful passion and deep despair, with new madrigals by contemporary composers such as Finnissy, Gervasoni, and Sciarrino. Catherine Kontz contributes her new composition Il Floridoro – Canto 4 to the collection, for which she has chosen a text by the poet Moderata Fonte from 1581 that is just relevant today as it was then.
