Product Description


technical comment

  • Franco-Flemish composer Giaches de Wert wrote a considerable amount of sacred music during the late Renaissance, but little of it was published during his lifetime. Only three books of motets were released in 1566 and 1581. Stile Antico's new album introduces us to another side of this composer who, though Flemish-born, spent most of his life in Italy, primarily in Mantua, where he was to remain for the rest of his life, though not without maintaining connections (both musical and, during the mid-late 1580s, romantic) with the court at Ferrara, where the lively musical life must have been a welcome distraction from his not-always-happy existence at the Mantuan court. The unique and dramatic style of these remarkable motets cannot fail to ravish explorers of this 'divine theatre'.

    Gaudete in Domino
    Hoc enim sentite in vobis
    Saule, Saule
    Vox in Rama audita est
    Amen, amen dico vobis
    Egressus Jesus
    Peccavi super numerum
    O Crux ave, spes unica
    Ascendente Jesu in naviculam
    Virgo Maria hodie ad coelum
    Quiescat vox tua a ploratu
    Deus iustus, et salvans
    O altitudo divitiarum
