Although Leonarda wrote more music than any other woman of the Baroque era, only one of her nearly 200 extant compositions has previously appeared in a modern edition. This volume reveals Leonarda's highly expressive style and offers a representative selection of her works in various genres. Included are two concerted liturgical works (a Kyrie and a psalm setting), four motets, and two sonatas.
