Album Summary

>Palestrina, Giovanni : Fourth Book of Motets from Canticis cantoricum, for 5 voices
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

No ordinary collection of motets, the Song of Songs sets the most sensual and openly erotic sections of the Old Testament which led Palestrina to employ 'a style of music a little more lively than normally used in other sacred compositions'. Directed by Philip Cave, Magnificat specializes in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries. Originally released in 2001, 'Da Palestrina: Song of Songs' has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO Series.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Perhaps it is my almost two decades of familiarity with these motets. There is the madrigal-like clarity that these unusual works demand; many scholars have noted a greater flexibility in Palestrina's polyphonic technique in these motets. Overall this is a very satisfying and engaging interpretation.
