Complete Sacred Music for Five Voices

Complete Sacred Music for Five Voices by Don Carlo Gesualdo
Released: Nov 1993
Label: Naxos
While perhaps less noticeable to today's ears, these Italian motets present innovative chromatic turns of harmony and melody that exist nowhere else in the music of the Renaissance. Gesualdo's novel, iconoclastic compositional style was influenced by his tumultuous emotional life, which was marked by depression, broken relationships, and physical self-torture.
