Oxford Camerata
Gesualdo: Sacred Mass for Five Voices

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

Directed by Jeremy Summerly

Without doubt the music written by the prince of Verona is some of the most macabre yet outlandishly fantastic music ever written. The famous unprepared chromatic side steps remain decidedly unnerving even to a devoted Second Viennese School. The effect of the chromatic spirals is often vertigo inducing but also deeply moving and ultimately awe-inspiring. This is truly sublime music by a neglected genius. The performances here are amongst the very best available of Gesualdo's music - at any price. This would be a perfect place to start exploring this bizarre but inspired musical universe.
