Renaissance composer Carlo Gesualdo is known for his intensely expressive madrigals and sacred music that use a chromatic language not heard until the late 19th century. Harmonia Mundi commemorates the four hundredth anniversary of his death in 2013, one of Gesualdo’s last works still remains to be discovered: the second book of his Sacrae Cantiones. These motets in six and seven voices have remained unknown due to the fact that several of the vocal parts were lost. James Wood has managed to reconstruct the score for the first time and performs these works as they might have been sung in 1603. Leading the Vocalconsort Berlin, Wood offers illuminating readings of these long-lost gems of the Italian Renaissance.
