Sicilian Love (Amore Siciliano) is a tribute to Southern Italy, The album is Exclusively Available in Stereo DSD 512, DSD 256, DSD 128 and DSD 64 from NativeDSD.

Love, drama and betrayal under the Sicilian sun: this ‘pasticcio’ of folk melodies and music by ‘learned’ composers was born of the love of Leonardo García Alarcón and the singers and musicians of the Cappella Mediterranea. Featuring Calabrian, Sicilian and Neapolitan songs dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

We hear music by Alessandro Scarlatti and Sigismondo d’India, both born in Palermo, as well as works from the extraordinarily rich collection of St John’s Co-Cathedral in Malta (notably by Vincenzo Tozzi).

Leonardo García Alarcón even composed a five-part fugue on La canzone di Cecilia, associated with the heroine of the drama. The music was arranged by Quito Gato.

This tribute to southern Italy by Cappella Mediterranea has triumphed on stage for years; now this recording immortalizes it.
