In his own time, Giovanni Paolo Cima (c.1570-c.1626) was considered one of the great composers of counterpoint, in a league with Monteverdi and Merulo. However his predilection for sacred music apparently caused his later neglect. The present program contains part of the broad range of styles found in his Concerti Ecclesiastici (Milan, 1610).
