Lassus: Lagrime di San Pietro
Orlande de Lassus created nothing finer than Lagrime di San Pietro. Lassus hurls the listener through the stages of Peter’s rage, remorse and resignation, concluding with a motet that presents Christ’s response to the world. It is available from Signum Classics.
Gallicantus’s robust and committed account will hearten those who fear for the future of this repertory on disc.
An involving experience...details are tellingly lingered over, repetitions properly emphasized and the score's illumination of an inner drama sensitively rendered.
Recording of the Month: This recording is something that absolutely must be experienced. You will not regret it at all.
Everything Gallicantus touches seems to turn to gold...this disc of Lassus's cycle of Petrine lamentation is stunning.
