Resume

In the tradition of Carissimi and Handel, Falvetti's music measures up to Sicily, the meeting place of Eastern and Western songs. Drawn on one of the well-known episodes of the Old Testament, Il diluvio universale was first performed in 1682 in Messina where Falvetti was a choirmaster. The work is a perfect catalogue of human emotions and the then fashionable musical genres.
