This Week's New Features - Thursday, August 22, 2013

Palestrina Music - Cantica Salomonis (Canticum Canticorum) The text for Palestrina's 29 motets collected here was The Song of Songs (also known as The Song of Solomon). These songs were written in a period of religious tumult and Counter-Reformation and evoke the love of Christ in devotional music of chamber-like refinement and joy. The Munich Palestrina Ensemble was formed in 1994 comprised mainly of students from Munich Universities, and specializes in sacred music of the 16th and 17th centuries with a special interest in Gregorian chant. more info
