The passacaglia (passacalio) in G Minor from Biagio Marini’s Opus 22, published in Venice in 1655. HD video from the Voices of Music Venetian Vespers concert, December, 2013.
For his passacaglia, Marini borrowed the typical texture of a pavan and added a short introduction to create a tightly-knit, seamless texture–a clear contrast to the more dramatic variations in his solo works.
