DIVINE THEATRE

Sacred Motets by Giaches De Wert

The other side of Giaches de Wert

Giaches de Wert is best known for his madrigals - the perfect bridge between the polphony of the high Renaissance and the new style of Monteverdi. Stile Antico's new album introduces us to another side of this composer who, though Flemish-born, spent most of his life in Italy, primarily in Mantua. The unique and dramatic style of these remarkable motets cannot fail to ravish explorers of this, 'divine theatre'.
