In addition, they accepted the challenge of giving to the instruments a role which was “tailor-made” to fit the pieces on the programme, thus bringing the performance closer to the descriptions found in contemporary treatises.
Just as in the early musical chapels, Accordone created a new repertory expressly for its own concerts. From this was born, in 2001, Una Odissea, an opera composed by Guido Morini to texts by Marco Beasley. In 2003 their first studio recording was released, La Bella Noeva (Alpha). This was followed one year later by Vivifice Spiritus Vitae Vis (“Servabo”), a sacred composition by Guido Morini on Latin texts from the Old Testament. 2004 saw the productions of Frottole, a project dedicated to the great musical tradition of the late Renaissance in Italy, and Recitar Cantando, entirely devoted to the style of the same name born in the early 17th century. Frottole and Recitar Cantando are the first two recordings made for the Belgian label Cypres, and has been published in 2005 and 2006, respectively.
