Bud RoachCazzati and Frenemies.

Maurizio Cazzati (1637-1678) did two things very well: he wrote beautiful music and had a knack for making enemies. This programme of music for tenor and theorbo includes music and readings from Cazzati and his contemporaries in Bologna and beyond. Canadian tenor and theorbist Bud Roach is presented by the Musica Omnia recording label.

Bud Roach has been recognized internationally for his ground-breaking achievements in historical performance and the self-accompanied practice. Musica Omnia recordings of arias by Grandi, Sances, as well as sacred canzonettas from the Chiavenna Oratory, leading his ensemble Capella Intima, have met with unanimous critical praise.
