      Palestrina's "Perfect Art"

      Palestrina’s Perfect Art

      The great nave of Washington National Cathedral is the perfect setting for the transcendent ars perfecta of Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina and other composers of the late Italian Renaissance. Splendid voices offer sacred motets, instruments perform canzone and dances, and all join forces for the sonorous polychoral works of Andrea Gabrieli and his nephew Giovanni, leading figures in Venetian music of the 17th century. With British vocal ensemble Stile Antico, Renaissance brass instruments, and organ.
