Love, desire and death - these are the three themes that pervade the musical poetry of Don Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa, which has become a byword for tortured emotion. These madrigals are the clearest depiction in his output of the torments of the soul, offering a faithful musical image of the 'sweet poison' which eats into lovers' hearts

Tracks:

Ahi, disperata vita
Sospirava il mio core
O malnati messaggi
Non t'amo, o voce ingrata
Canzon francese del Principe
Luci serene e chiare
Sparge la morte al mio Signor
Arde il mio cor
Io tacerò, ma nel silenzio mio
Occhi del mio cor vita
Mercè grido paingendo
Asciugate i begli occhi
Correte, amanti
Se la mia morte brami
Io parto, e non più dissi,
Ardita zanzaretta
Ardo per te, mio bene
