‘Pur ti miro, pur ti godo’
This album is a musical journey drawing back the curtain that obscured these gay love-stories

for centuries. In the 17th-century, Venice offered a liberal safe haven of sorts to the gay com- munity of greater Europe. There are accounts of outed artists escaping to Venice to live and

work amongst its more permissive culture. Almost 400 years later, we reconnect with this uncommonly tolerant place and time to share a history that is yet untold. The album includes vivid and charming duets from Monteverdi’s 7th book of madrigals as

well as his touching musical love letters (lettere amorose). Additionally, there are four mod- ern-day premieres of works by the little-known composers Boretti, Melani, and Castrovillari;

including a moving duet for the lovers Hercules and Theseus as they exit the underworld hand-in-hand. Solo arias by Cavalli and Stradella depict the yearning of hidden love, and the

recording culminates with one of the most beautiful duets of all time, ‘Pur ti miro’ from Mon- teverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea. This album is a recognition and celebration of gay love

that spans the centuries.
