    Les Métaboles, Léo Warynski
    Adriado Banchieri (1581-1634) was an Italian composer and organist. "Festino nella sera del Giovedì Grasso" is a set of 20 madrigals for five-part chorus. It was composed in 1608 as a Commedia dell'arte play which represents a banquet. The guests play, sing and tell stories. The most famous part of "Festino" is the "animal counterpoint", a satirical counterpoint for a four-part chorus thought as an improvisation by animals (dog, cat, cuckoo, owl) on a Gregorian basso continuo theme. (Recording produced with the support of the Cité de la Voix and the Orange Foundation)
