In memoriam Carlo Gesualdo

Ave, Regina coelorum
Venit lumen tuum Jerusalem
Ave, dulcissima Maria
Reminiscere miserationum tuarum
Dignare me, laudare te
Sancti Spiritus Domine
Domine ne despicias
Hei mihi Domine
Laboravi in gemitu meo
Peccantem me quotidie
O vos omnes
Exaudi Deus deprecationem meam
Precibus et meritis beatae Mariae
O Crux benedicta
Tribularer si nescirem
Deus refugium et virtus
Tribulationem et dolorem
Illumina faciem tuam
Maria mater gratiae
Da pacem Domine
Assumpta est Maria

We have twice performed the complete Responsoria of Gesualdo, but never before have we dipped into his Sacrae Cantiones I, published in 1603. The work was published in two sections, the first containing motets for five voices, the second motets for six and seven voices. But, while all five part-books of the first section have come down to us, the second section is lacking two of its part-books (though the missing bass part-book is apparently in private ownership in Italy). Our program features all of the five-voice motets as well as two of the six-voice pieces; these last two items editorially completed.
