When he arrived to take up a position at Venice's St Marks in 1617, Grandi had already been maestro di cappella in Ferrara for several years.He left for Bergamo in 1627, only to fall victim to the plague there in 1630.
This Soprano / Bass duet comes from the sixth and last of the composer's concertato motets, printed in 1630 (the year he died). It is to all intents and purposes a sacred love duet, which starts with the bass calling to the soprano, who answers "Whose voice is this I hear?"
