Pomerium—Passion and Resurrection Motets of the Renaissance


This spring, Pomerium performs its exploration of the great Renaissance choral music of Passiontide and Easter. The program proceeds from Palm Sunday to Easter Day with an emphasis on music for Holy Thursday and Good Friday. Stylistically, the progression leads from chant to its elaborations by Guillaume Dufay and Senfl. The austerity of the Crucifixion gives way to the splendid celebration of the Resurrection, culminating in glorious motets by Orlande de Lassus, Claudio Monteverdi, Carlo Gesualdo, and William Byrd.

Listen to a sample of Pomerium.
