Palestrina: Master of All

  • St. Andrew's Lutheran Church 11555 National Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90064 United States (map)

Praised and imitated by his contemporaries and revered throughout the centuries, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina crafted some of the greatest a capella music of all time. Jouyssance devotes an entire concert to this contrapuntal master, presenting not only his most beloved motets, but also the sumptuous Missa L'homme armé à 5.  Although he is long associated with the Catholic Church, Palestrina had a rarely seen secular side, which Jouyssance will explore with a selection of his madrigals.
