One of the most important composers in Venice at the end of the 17th century, Legrenzi played a leading role in the development of Baroque musical language in northern Italy. A master of Baroque musical rhetoric, his work makes use of numerous devices related to the principle of evoking emotions in music that prevailed at the time: expressive harmonies and melodic elegance. La Morte del Cor Penitente, with its many arias, recitatives and ritornellos, is a perfect example.
