Program: #03-05 Air Date: Feb 03, 2003
Palestrina's death on Candlemas (February 2) has always made the month of February a good one to celebrate the great composer; this week, the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir takes us on a musical tour of this Renaissance titan.
Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant from Boyd Holmes.
NOTE: The music on this program is from a recording by the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir directed by Ebbe Munk. It features music by GIOVANNI PIERLUIGI da PALESTRINA (c. 1525--February 2, 1594).
This recording is on the danica label and is number DCD-8163. For information on this label, you may contact their web site: www.ohmusik.dk
