Cavalieri: Rappresentatione di anima et di corpo, Act I, Scena Prima: Il tempo, il tempo fugge (Tempo)

Composed at a time when neither oratorio nor opera existed, this Rappresentatione premiered in February 1600 is a magisterial musical drama. In its dialogue between Soul and Body – an emblematic theme of the Counter-Reformation – it employs singers, chorus, and an extensive orchestra whose varied timbres both accompany and characterise the soloists. At the dawn of the Baroque revolution, song, stage action, dance, and instrumental music combine in perfect harmony.
