Notes & Reviews:
Orlando di Lasso once again can be experienced as one of the most important masters of Renaissance music. His 'Prophetiae Sibyllarum', a work unique in the whole of music history, occupies the center of this new Weser-Renaissance production. This setting of the oracles of the sibyls and the composer's experiments with the chromatic mode stand alone. Departing from his customary, polyphonically through-imitative compositional style, here Lasso systematically limits himself to a four-part, mostly homophonic-syllabic writing style while employing a tonal system with a relevance for modern music that was only just beginning to be discovered during the middle of the sixteenth century.Notes & Reviews:
