  Giacomo Carissimi
Giacomo Carissimi (baptized April 18, 1605, died January 12, 1674), was an Italian composer, one of the most celebrated masters of the Italian, or, more accurately, the Roman school of music.
It is impossible to say who was really the inventor of the chamber-cantata; but Carissimi and Luigi Rossi were the composers who first made this form the vehicle for the most intellectual style of chamber-music, a function which it continued to perform until the death of Alessandro Scarlatti, Astorga[?] and Marcello.
Carissimi is also noted as one of the first composers of oratorios, with Jephthah probably the most well known; this work and others are important as definitely establishing the form of oratorio unaccompanied by dramatic action, which has maintained its hold to the prcsent day.

Giacomo Carissimi (baptized April 18, 1605, died January 12, 1674), was an Italian composer, one of the most celebrated masters of the early Baroque, or, more accurately, the Roman school of music.

After completing his musical education in Rome, Carissimi became choirmaster at Assisi, and, in 1628, he was appointed to a like position at the church of St. Apollinaris in Rome.
By imparting a lyric quality to the recitative, lending variety to the orchestral accompaniments, and dramatic movement to the whole, he developed this form to the point where it was taken up and carried to its perfection by Händel and Bach.
Of Carissimi's settings to liturgical texts two printed collections of motets for two, three, and four voices, and masses for five and nine voices are mentioned.

At the age of twenty he became chapel-master at Assisi, and in 1628 he obtained the same position at the church of St Apollinaris belonging to the Collegium Germanicum in Rome, which he held till his death on the 12th of January 1674, at Rome.
The two great achievements generally ascribed to him are the further development of the recitative, lately introduced by Monteverde, and of infinite importance in the history of dramatic music; and the invention of the chamber-cantata, by which Carissimi superseded the madrigals formerly in use.
It is impossible to say who was really the inventor of the chambercantata; but Carissimi and Luigi Rossi were the composers who first made this form the vehicle for the most intellectual style of chamber-music, a function which it continued to perform until the death of Alessandro Scarlatti, Astorga and Marcello.

 Notes on the Carissimi Oratorio, Jephte
Giacomo Carissimi's life (1605 - 1674) is distinguished by a spectacular lack of incident.
Carissimi became maestro di cappella at the church of San Rufino in Assisi in 1628.
Additions to the Biblical narrative include a suitably dramatic enactment of the Israelite victory, a song of victory sung by Jephthah's daughter, fleshing out a dialogue between Jephthah and his daughter fleshing out why the oath must be fulfilled, and, most strikingly, a moving lament in which the daughter bemoans her unfortunate plight.

Since the death of Giacomo Carissimi (1606-74), his liturgical music – which includes over 100 motets (with as many again of doubtful authenticity) and a small handful of Masses – has received little attention.
Carissimi may have refused to apply for the recently deceased Monteverdi's post at St Mark's in 1643, but he was in many ways Monteverdi's artistic successor.
The performance of his mass is beatifully done by Consortium Carissimi which consists of three male voice (two tenors and bass) as well as a basso continuo.

As I stated in my review of the Carissimi mass by Naxos theses motets sound more like songs than other sacred motets that I have heard but that does not mean that they are not effective.
For the most part the motets are infectiously joyous which is well conveyed by the Consortium Carissimi uses historically appropriate group of instruments to highlight the text.
