The pairing here of Giovanni De Macque (1548-1614) and Giovanni Salvatore (1620-1688) is not really explained, although the role of each in Neapolitan & Italian keyboard music is discussed. There is no discussion of the instrument used here, a frustrating situation.

This is to be the first in a series of 17th century Italian keyboard recitals by Michèle Dévérité for Arion.

Another recording devoted partly to De Macque on organ, again paired with music by another composer for no apparent reason:

Palestrina & De Macque - Organ Music
